Dasylirion cedrosanum is a little known sotol that hails from the Sierra Madre Occidental highlands, primarily in the Mexican states of Chihuahua, Coahuila, and Durango. In these areas, Dasylirion cedrosanum can be found growing in open, alkaline rocky grasslands at 3,000' to 6,000' elevation. In appearance, Dasylirion cedrosanum resembles Dasylirion wheeleri, except the twisted, powder blue, linear leaves are slightly wider. Expect a 3' tall x 4' wide specimen in ten years, although ancient, century-old specimens can reach 5' tall.
