This little-known bear grass, Nolina parviflora comes from 8,000' elevation in the Cerro Perote Mountains near Xalapa in the Mexican state of Vera Cruz. Growing in the dry rain shadow region of the mountain, the drought-tolerant Nolina parviflora makes an architectural 15' tall multi-trunked specimen of elegant green leaves, resembling a giant ponytail palm.
