I've seen these growing in the wild (full sun, zone 9b) on the West Ruby Road Trail in Arizona (South of Tucson), off of Interstate 19 through to Ruby, AZ and on to Arivaca, AZ.

Neutral palmbob On Aug 5, 2004, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

small suckering species that looks like a clump of thick spiny dark green grass (leaves about 1/16-1/8" wide). Native to N Mexico and S Arizona. Not one of the more ornamental species (in my opinion). Nice flowers, though.
