Chaparral Nolina (Nolina cismontana)

Observer

Description

Old scape approximately 23mm diameter above the base around 26-30mm at base. Leaf strap approximately 1.5cm near the base, and 2.5-3cm at base.

Inflorescence heights are over 2m but I couldn't measure that.

Bracts persistent.

Altitude approximately 1220ft.

Location has potential for introduction, but cohabitating species also suggest potentially natural occurrence.
