Availability: In stock


Quick Overview

Calibanus hookeri, fresh import, caudex diam. 34 cm (30-5)


Origin from North central Mexico (San Luis Potosi).
The form of this plant is much like a trunk less bear grass (Nolina).
Caudex topped by perennial grassy looking silver-blue leaves, up to 90 cm long and expanded from a woody base.
This swollen trunk is often exposed in cultivation by caudiciform enthusiasts.
It withstood temperatures of -17°C, but its exact hardiness is unknown.
Because of its extreme drought tolerance it makes a great container plant for light shade to full sun, or is an excellent foliage accent to the dry garden in warm regions.

Fresh Mexico import:
When we import from Mexico the plants arrive without roots.
For a short time period we can offer these plants bare rooted, which is much easier to ship.
After that, the plants will be potted in our nursery and left there to root for at least a few months. When rooted, they will be offered as rooted plants.
