This new species to cultivation was wild collected in Sombrerete, Mexico #1921.8. The wonderful powder blue twisted and very spiny foliage is similar in appearance to D. wheeleri....eventually making a 4' wide specimen. The genus dasylirion is in very serious need of further study....any of you out of work taxonomists want to take on this challenge? This is a one time offering with limited quantities, so don't wait.
