Mexican Grass Tree

Image 1 Image 2 Image 3

Dasylirion longissimum, also known as Mexican Grass Tree or Sotol, is a striking and resilient plant native to Mexico. Here's some information on its characteristics:

Habitat: Dasylirion longissimum is typically found in arid regions, including desert scrublands and rocky slopes. It's well adapted to thrive in dry and sunny conditions.

Growth Rate: This plant is known for its relatively slow growth rate. It's not the quickest to mature, but the wait is often worth it due to its unique appearance.

Mature Size: The mature size of Dasylirion longissimum can vary, but it generally reaches a height of 6 to 10 feet, with a spread of 3 to 6 feet. The rosette of narrow, arching leaves contributes to its distinctive look.

Landscape Application: This plant is commonly used in xeriscape gardens and desert landscaping. Its architectural form and long, slender leaves make it a focal point in gardens with a Southwestern, Mediterranean, Contemporary or arid theme. It works well in both residential and commercial landscapes planted in the ground or planted in decorative pots in suitable environments.

Cold Hardiness: Dasylirion longissimum is known for its cold hardiness. It can tolerate temperatures down to around 15 to 20 degrees Fahrenheit.

When cultivating Dasylirion longissimum, it's essential to provide well-draining soil and to avoid overwatering, as it is adapted to arid conditions. All of our plants are shipped bare root.

Why purchase our Columnar Cacti?

Our columnar cacti are grown in their native habitat right here in Southern Arizona. Raised outdoors with just the right amount of water and fertilizer, they come to you in their natural form. These plants do not come to you from a greenhouse. They are already hardy to whatever growing conditions you have to offer. Our columnar cacti present the same appearance as you will find them in their native habitats.

If you want to plant them in a container for a sunroom, patio or window planter, great! If you want to take your columnar cacti and plant them in the ground, also great! No acclimation needed. Our plants are ready to go!
