Dasylirion Serratifolium
Dasylirion Serratifolium, sometimes known as sandpaper stool, is a slow growing succulent. It is a rare and interesting architectural plant most suitable for pots on roof terraces and patios but also ideal for UK-based tropical themed gardens. Dasylirion Serratifolium has sharp serrated edges on the sides of each frond. Its eye-catching foliage creates a fanfare effect, typically on a dramatically short and stocky trunk, which develops as the plant matures. 
Dasylirion Serratifolium, which originates from Mexico where it grows in the wild. In Europe, it is grown as an ornamental plant. It is hardy outside here in the UK in a well-draining pot and / or sheltered position provided the weather is not too extreme. If the winter is particularly severe, you can protect the plant by wrapping. Simply wrap in extreme winters by packing straw into the centre of the plant (carefully because the plant is spiky and can bite!).  Then once packed with straw, tie up all the fronds upright. 
Our specimens of Dasylirion Serratifolium are mature and sizable plants and are better able to withstand harsh below zero temperatures. 
These succulents can be considered reliable exotics and are ideal for adding a hardy framework to any tropical themed UK garden.
