Alluaudia ascendens

Alluaudia ascendens is a species of Alluaudia endemic to Madagascar. It can reach 15 m in height. Its local name is fantsiolotse. It grows in dry spiny shrub forest or dry deciduous thicket. These forests are stratified and Alluaudia ascendens occur in the upper canopy mixed with other species like: Adansonia za (Baobab tree), Operculicarya decaryi, Alluaudia procera, Commiphora aprevalii, and Tetrapterocarpon geayi.




Alluaudia procera

Alluaudia procera, or Madagascar ocotillo, is a deciduous succulent plant species of the family Didiereaceae. It is endemic to southern madagascar. This plant is a spiny succulent shrub, with thick water-storing stems and leaves that are deciduous in the long dry season. Although strikingly similar in appearance, it is not closely related to the ocotillo, Fouquieria splendens of the Sonoran Deserts in North America. Young alluaudias form a tangle of stems that last for several years after which a strong central stem develops. The basal stems then die out leaving a tree-like stem that branches higher up on the main trunk. Researchers haven’t figured out where the Didiereaceae family originates from. However, the nearest relative of the Didiereaceae, Calyptrotheca somalensis, is endemic to East Africa, from which the island of Madagascar separated 100 million years ago. Thus, the Didiereaceae may have originated from the dispersal to Madagascar of a Calyptrotheca-like East African ancestor.
