Description

An evergreen such as this one can be over 500 years old, as they grow very slowly. After initial flowering, they develop branches after each flower over the years. The Dasylirion Longissimum or more commonly known as ‘Toothless Sotol, Beargrass’ comes from the desert in Mexico. Growing up in the mountains, they almost have no roots whatsoever. When first received they have hardly any roots and you must give them around one year to grow. Their sensitivity to water is very high and they do not like to be watered or drowned. Of course, a good drainage system is a crucial and vital part of their care; luckily, they are very cold resistant. The Mexican Grass Tree has a bushy habit and forms maturely. The positioning that is best suited for this tree will have partial shade and soil that is well drained. You can learn more about how to care for these types of trees in our news and advice section. As this will require a dedicated delivery service, we will aim to place your Palm Tree as close to the final position as possible however, if you have special delivery requirements, please let us know and we will make arrangements for you.
