|Panorama of front border at Froggy Bottom showing various yuccas, dasylirions, and Nolina nelsoniis|
I have previously posted about Nolina nelsonii here. This is a plant that I intend to get for my new garden, but have not managed to find any that are large enough yet. I don't want to start with a tiny one, because it takes so long for them to reach the size shown in the picture (about 20 years). I had 2 of these bloom a couple of years ago, and although they are not supposed to, they died after blooming. Bummer! I think there might have been something going on with them that caused them to bloom and die. The other ones at Froggy Bottom are doing just fine and, thus far, have not bloomed.
