Nearly toothless dasylirion

Post by gdlwyverex »

Got this dasylirion today which looks a whole lot like a D. Wheeleri but almost totally toothless with just a few teeth near the trunk on a few of the leaves.

Apparently this is a hybrid native to freeway underpasses just outside Tuscon with a range extending north to Las Vegas, west into the inland valleys of California and east into Albuquerque known as the crack-head dasylirion. Over the last few decades their range has expanded as their popularity has grown to become an invasive species across the country.
