Bear Grass or Mexican Grass Tree
Dasylirion longissimum or Bear Grass. A striking form plant, this spiky ‘ball’ makes an ideal feature plant and is useful for patio planting. But be careful where you place Dasylirion; given its size, saw toothed edges and sharp points, it can inflict painful wounds if it juts onto walkways.
Often used as a screening shrub. Evergreen and draught and cold tolerant.
