The Mexican grass tree, or Dasylirion, is an unusual plant. With its peculiar but original shape with downward hanging crown, this plant has a beautiful appearance. This charming plant loves light and does well in full sun. It hates moisture, so it is important to use well-draining soil. As this extraordinary plant grows older, a trunk with dark brown specks will appear, which turns the plant into a real eye-catcher, despite the fact that it takes its time to grow.

Tough plant with ridged trunk
Dasylirions can reach a height of up to 160 cm (3 feet) and an age of 25 years. Under ideal conditions the plant can grow even higher and the trunk can grow very thick. The leaves are gray-blue or green and are tooth-shaped. The unusual leaves are long and linear. The Dasylirion can produce many small cream-coloured flowers. This plant, from Eastern Mexico and the Southern United States, is a beautiful plant that can be used to enhance your garden.
