Dioon argenteum

back to Nursery pageNursery.html

This is unequivocally the king of Dioons.  The name argenteum comes from the latin word for silver because of the appearance of the plant with new growth.  This is a recently discovered and described species that is not well known to science or cultivation.  Only a few lucky collectors and botanical gardens have this plant in cultivation.   As of spring, 2014 a few seedlings are available.
