Dioon rzedowski

back to Nursery pageNursery.html

This  beautiful species is endemic to Oaxaca, Mexico where it grows in exposed areas hanging off rocky outcropping on steep slopes.  The appearance is distinctively different from other Dioons when compared side by side but at a glance it appears to hold characteristics of Dioon spinulosum combined with upright leaves and wool of Dioon mejiae.  Plants are easy to grow and can withstand full sun, and have numerous aesthetically rewarding characteristics making them a superior plant for the garden.
