Nolina texana

Sacahuista, Bear Grass

Indigenous to New Mexico and central Texas, this grasslike plant grows slowly to form a stemless clump of leathery dark green leaves. It has a weeping, almost flat habit compared to other Beargrasses. The slender leaves have smooth margins and soft tips. In late spring a 2-foot-tall spike of flowers is produced down inside the rosette of foliage. Plant in full sun or part shade, and well-drained soil.
