(syn: Dasylirion longissimum) Dasylirion quadrangulatum is the most spectacular of the Mexican sotols, without the typical spiny leaves. This magnificent deer-resistant specimen (6' tall x 6' wide in 10 years) forms a fountain of thin clothesline-like arching leaves to 3'...looking sort of like a car antenna after getting caught in a cheap carwash. Dasylirion quadrangulatum is somewhat shade-tolerant compared with most of the other sotols.
