Discovered by French naturalist Jean-Louis Berlandier in 1843, east of Monterrey, Mexico (Nuevo Leon), Dasylirion berlandieri is one of the largest and most elegant of the Mexican sotols. The dusty blue, wavy, evergreen foliage is about half the width of Dasylirion wheeleri, but the leaves are much longer, reaching over 5' in length. In 10 years, expect a 7' tall x 4' wide, spectacular, drought-tolerant clump. Unlike agave, dasylirion do not die after flowering.
