I was excited to see this very cold-growing dasylirion in the wild during my 2000 west Texas expedition, at an amazing 7,000' elevation in Ft. Davis. This southwest US native makes a striking deer-resistant yucca-like specimen, but it has spines along the edges of the leaves, not on the ends. This sotol would make a great accent plant...it produces a 4' tall x 4' wide plant in ten years. When flowering time comes, expect a giant 12' tall spike...suitable for Jack and a bag full of beans. This is an offering with limited quantities.
