Nolina interrata (Dehesa Bear Grass) - Dehesa bear grass occurs in localized populations from the interior foothills of San Diego County to northwestern Baja California, Mexico. Most populations of N. interrata are situated in relatively rugged terrain dominated by chaparral, which is often associated with nutrient-poor soils, cool wet winters and hot dry summers. Nolina interrata does not flower every year and reproduces primarily asexually from underground stems. However, fires and other disturbances will induce profuse blooming and timed controlled burns may be necessary to maintain population vigor. A total of about 9,000 Nolina interrata plants are known. Occurrences that are entirely female require pollen from disjunct male plants to fertilize the flowers and produce viable seeds. Nolina interrata is cultivated at the Huntingdon Desert Garden, where it flowers annually.  The information provided on this page is based on research we have conducted about this plant in our nursery's library, from what we have found about it on reliable online sources, as well as from observations in our nursery of crops of this plant as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens. We will also incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if it includes cultural information that would aid others in growing  Nolina interrata.
