This surprisingly hardy yucca relative is absolutely exquisite! Each dramatically architectural, deer-resistant clump will grow 3' tall x 4' wide with long, powder-blue, gently twisting leaves. The spines are on the sides of the leaf...not the tips. Instead, the end of each leaf forms a little cowlick curl...like Elvis used to have (I mean, like Elvis STILL has...somewhere!). If you are having trouble imagining this, think of a giant, blue-braided Afro. Mature clumps are topped in summer by thick, bean pole-like flower scapes to 10' tall. The hardiness of sotol is related to keeping the crown of the plant dry during the winter.
