Nolina nelsoni

Blue Nolina

Native to Mexico, this bold plant has long, 1-inch-wide leaves ranging from grey-green to powder blue. The leaves are edged with tiny teeth. It grows at a moderate rate, eventually developing a tall trunk. Old leaves persist on the trunk, and may be removed for a neater appearance. Periodically an imposing spike of chartreuse flowers is produced. Plant in full sun, reflected heat, or part shade.
