Click on the size you're interested to add it to cart.

 

 

 

Dasylirion wheeleri is stem succulent related to yucca and agave that forms a beautifully regular dome of leaves, each long and thin, waxy coated with serrated margins and tufted at the end. The colour is variable, often blue-grey, sometimes mid-green and quite often twisted giving each leaf a kind of spiral effect. In their native desert habitat Wheeler's Sotol is an incredibly hardy plant, withstanding freezing to below -15C and taking severe drought. In the UK the damp climate is less to its liking and plants, although still hardy, need perfect drainage and full sun.

This plant will also send up a huge flower spike if it's happy--my last one was 15ft! Have two in pots in Torquay and they seem to winter well as do all varieties of Dasylirion!

I bought one of these from The Palm Centre last year. I have it planted close to a SE facing wall with other arid blue/grey foliage plants such as Yucca Rostrata, Yucca Linearis and Chamearops 'Cerifera'.Looks great, and growing well!
