(aka: Dasylirion wheeleri A4AZ-019) This form of the wonderful Dasylirion wheeleri comes from seed we collected near the town of Payson in Gila County, Arizona. This amazing 7' tall specimen sotol had a 3' tall trunk on the normally trunkless Dasylirion wheeleri. Either this plant was really, really old, or was truly genetically different and will produce other trunked individuals...we don't know. If you try one, we'd love to hear back from you in a couple of decades if yours produces a trunk.
