Nolina nelsonii

Nolina nelsonii

From the desert and mountain regions of Northern Mexico comes this easy to grow, amazingly HARDY succulent tree-like shrub. Remarkably architectural and pretty fast growing, one or more stems create outstanding 3-4’ across rosettes of slightly serrated (but not sharp) ultra silvery-blue 1” wide leaves. As all good things come to those who wait, at maturity we get a robust bloom stalk rising 4’ above the foliage, bearing thousands of creamy yellow, scented flowers. Ordinary garden or fast draining soil. Extremely drought tolerant. Hardy to 0-10 degrees F.
