CACTUS & OTHERS

Sotol
Dasylirion leiophyllum

The sotol appears from the Hill Country through West Texas.  It is a tough, drought-resistant plant that can have a diameter of 3 to 4 feet.  It has a single tall flower spike that reaches upwards to ten or more feet.   The dry stalk makes a great walking stick.  Use it in sunny locations with lots of room since the leaves are edged in spines.  It flowers during the warm months of the year.
