Curator’s Garden Tour- Dasylirion (Members Only)

Saturday, August 17, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 10:00 am

Dasylirion longissimum

Join long-time curator, Brian Kemble, for an early morning walk in the garden to learn about the unique Dasylirion collection.  These natives of the SW United States and Mexico feature large heads of long narrow strap-like leaves, typically with saw-tooth edges.  They flower in summer to early fall, with tall spires of thousands of tiny flowers which are much loved by bees.  Male and female flowers come on separate plants.  Common names include desert spoon and sotol.

You must be a RBG member to attend this introductory, 30-minute class.

This garden tour is FULL.  If you would like to be on the wait list, please email alice@ruthbancroftgarden.org
