Dasylirion longissimum ‘Quadrangula’ is a robust arid growing plant almost grass like when young eventually forming a trunk as it matures originating from northern Mexico. They are not related to grasses being botanically similar to the Agave family to which they share their native habitat. To us look much more like the rare Grass trees from Australia sharing similar leaves and sturdy trunks which as it ages becomes backened and bare of leaves. When the plant is mature it blooms producing a spectactular dispaly of hundreds of greenish-white bell-shaped flowers on a tall narrow spike originating from the center of the plant.
like most Dasylirion, Dasylirion longissimum ‘Quadrangula’ is proving to be quiet hardy in milder parts of the U.K provided it has perfect drainage in sunny position.
