Neutral Floridian On Dec 7, 2004, Floridian from Lutz, FL (Zone 9b) wrote:

Nolina brittoniana is endemic to just 7 central Florida counties. Due to loss of habitat the plants are rare and listed as endangered by Florida and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service under the Federal Endangered Species Act. Fortunately this plant is abundant in intact habitats and easy to grow from seed. Several native plant nurseries offer this plant for sale.
