This spectacular sotol boasts very wide powder blue leaves on a specimen with a distinctive outward arching to almost weeping habit to 4' wide x 3' tall... great where an evergreen ornamental grass shape is needed. This Yucca Do collection #52-22 was made in Las Alamedas in Tamaulipas, Mexico at 3500' elevation, where it grows on very steep limestone slopes. Mature plants are topped in June with 8' tall flowers spikes that are composed of bizarre 10" white "fingers".
