Dasylirion wheeleri

A common and conspicuous plant of lower elevation slopes and other rocky areas.

Close view of a leaf near Dripping Springs in the Organ Mts., 7/31/05.

A portion of an inflorescence near Dripping Springs, 7/31/05. The plants are dioecious, but unfortunately I couldn't get a close enough look at these to tell if they are pistillate or staminate flowers.

Plant habit after a controlled burn in lower Ice Canyon on the west side of the Organ Mountains, 3 May 2008.
