From the Mexican state of Tamaulipas comes this really cool and far-out bear grass (a little Deadhead gardener lingo). Mature architectural specimens of Nolina nelsonii resemble giant ponytail palms, with rigid but not sharp, pointed, 3' long x 1" wide, silvery blue-green, grass-like foliage. When the 10'-12' tall deer-resistant clumps mature (18 years in our climate), a 4' tall bloom stalk will rocket forth with thousands of tiny white flowers! To quote the redneck pick-up line, it resembles a parking ticket, because it has "fine" written all over it.
