This offering represents seed-propagated plants of Dioon edule var. edule from populations in Jacala, Mexico that occur around 4,500' elevation. The glossy, bright green fronds can eventually reach 10' in length, so plant to allow enough room. Dioon edule has been great so far in our garden winter hardiness trials.
