Pachypodium succulentum is common and widely distributed in arid stony areas in the Little Karoo and Eastern Cape Province.
The plants are very similar to Pachypodium bispinosum with a large subterranean tuber and can only be positively identified when in flower. The flowers of Pachypodium succulentum are white with a narrow tube and a reddish line in the center of each petal.
