Cacti and succulents, Perennials

NOLINA

Accent plants with tough, grassy leaves usually about 3 ft. long, typically on a thick trunk. In spring or summer, 3–4-ft. stalks rise from the center of the foliage rosette, carrying tiny greenish or creamy white flowers. Plants are valued for their strong vertical silhouette rather than their blossoms. Good for desert or other dry landscapes.
