Nolina greenei is a recently re-recognized species of North American native bear grass, re-instated when Nolina texana was recently served with separation papers. Nolina greenei is now the correct name for plants that occur from central New Mexico north to the Black Mesa region of Oklahoma and into southeastern Colorado. There it grows in rocky, alkaline grasslands and open pine-oak woods between 3,700' and 6,000' elevation. Our offering is a seed strain from San Miguel County, New Mexico. Nolina greenei is similar to Nolina texana in that it grows from an underground caudex. Nolina greenei forms a 3' tall x 5' wide clump of stiff evergreen foliage...wider leaves edged with very fine tiny teeth, compared to Nolina texana. Like Nolina texana, the airy clusters of small white flowers that arise in mid-late spring are nestled among the foliage.
