Dasylirion miquihuanense - Grass Tree

This listing is for 10 seeds of this relative of the Agave.

Dasylirion miquihuanense forms a woody, robust stem of 20 to 250 cm in height. The square at the base, rigid, smooth, thickened, variable, green, thick leaves are 70 to 100 cm long and 10 to 15 mm wide. The variable lengthed radial spines face upwards. The tips of the leaves are quite fibrous/bushy when juvenille. It is quite a striking plant, whether pot grown or grown in open ground.

The woody inflorescence is 2 to 3 m high. The numerous flowers are olive to tan colour. Flowering occurs in Spring/early Summer. The elliptic to ovate, tan coloured fruit capsules contain a 1 seed and are 6 to 7 mm long, 5-6.5 mm wide. The triangular seeds are 3 mm long and 2.5 mm wide.

Dasylirion miquihuanense is widespread endemic at altitudes from 1700 to 1900 m in Mexico in southern Nuevo Leon and Tamaulipas in the south. It grows in desert areas in open, flat terrain and rocky slopes, associated with Dasylirion quadrangulatum, Dasylirion berlandieri, Yucca filifera, Agave lechuguilla, Agave striata and various cacti species. A recent discovery, it was first described in 1998.
