Dasylirion quadrangulatum (Toothless Sotol)

Dasylirion quadrangulatum
Toothless Sotol, Toothless Desert Spoon, Mexican Grass Tree

This spectacular accent plant is native to Mexico. Plants slowly form a stout trunk, and are crowned with a symmetrical rosette of very narrow green leaves. The flexible, leathery, unarmed leaves are arranged in whorls around the trunk. Older plants produce 10 foot tall flower stalks annually. It works well in full sun, part sun, and shady locations, as long as good drainage is provided. It is an excellent container plant.
