We have been so thrilled at our success with Dioon edule that we want more folks to try it. This offering represents seed-propagated plants of the variety Dioon edule var. angustifolium from southern Tamaulipas, Mexico. The stiff glaucous-green leaves resemble an old sun-baked vinyl chair after rigor mortis sets in. The fronds typically reach 3-4' in length and often emerge an attractive reddish-bronze. We recommend at least 4-6 hours of sun and well-drained soils for best growth.
