similar in appearance to Dasylirion wheeleri, but without the neat tassles as the ends of the leaves, and a larger, and bit messier plant. But similar flat, spiny, blue-grey leaves. Leaves don't tend to have the twist as in wheeleri... not sure how the two are related. Some may think they are just variations on the same species. Both from Mexico

Regional...
