Mexican Grass Tree


This succulent makes a stunning desert specimen with its stiff narrow grass-like leaves radiating from a central trunk that hugs the ground for many years but can slowly and eventually grow 6-15 feet high. On mature plants white flowers will emerge from reddish buds on a nine foot tall spike.
