Moringa drouhardii

2 posts in this topic

Here is our Moringa drouhardii. This is a Madagascar native and will grow a thick swollen trunk but with short branches and weepy foliage. Its fast growing and very drought tolerant. Looks like a tree from a Dr. Suess book. This is in our Arid Garden, it gets no irrigation.

Planted these Moringa drouhardii about 3 years ago in pots. Put them in the ground last Spring..they really took off after that...this pic from July '07.

Today the one in the center is about 15 feet tall. I cut off a couple feet of that one a few months ago (under power lines)...it bifurcated but only one of the branches survived.
