This is a very nice species from Oaxaca, Mexico. It is known as the fish bone cycad because of how its leaves look (spaced leaflets which have a similar took to a fish’s skeleton). This beautiful cycad has green leaflets which have a fine silvery/white tomentum. It is hardy to sun, though it can tolerate a partial sun exposure. This species is slow growing, but can get to heights several meters tall. This would not be typical in cultivation though. D. purpusii is quite rare in cultivation and is a real treat to see in person. It is hardy down to the mid 20’s. Availability of this species is always very limited.
