Botanically, Dasylirion serratifolium is a species of Sotol from southern Mexico. However, in cultivation it is more of a ‘catch-all’ name for a mixed group of hybrids that have green leaves with toothed margins and terminal tufts. For all practical purposes this is unimportant to anyone other than a dasylirion specialist – in the garden they make a stunning focal point for the arid border along with Yucca, Nolina, Agave and Chamaerops with their fine-leafed ‘fibre-optic lamp’ appearance that contrasts well with other spiky plants. Alternatively their shape is perfect for pot culture, when they can be taken under glass for winter.

Care & Size Guidance
Dasylirion serratifolium, commonly known as Serrated Dasylirion or Serrated Sotol, thrives in well-drained soil and needs the sunniest, warmest spot you can give it. This striking succulent grows slowly to heights of 1.5 metres. Minimal watering is sufficient once established, as it is highly drought-tolerant and the plant requires little pruning apart from removing dead leaves.
When the plant is old enough to flower, the giant flower stem can quickly reach heights of 4+ metres!
This plant’s unique, spiky foliage and resilience make it an excellent choice for xeriscaping or as a striking focal point in arid or desert-themed landscapes.
