These pictures are some specimen sized Dioon edule plants available in the nursery

Endemic to Mexico this species is native to deciduous pine and oak forests in the Sierra Madre Oriental mountains.  In the garden these plants are usually small and slow growing, but widely adaptable to a range of soils, temperatures, watering, and other conditions.  Older specimens are dramatically better than small plants.
