A species of Central Mexico that is quite unlike most other Hechtias in that its leaves are thin, long and grassy. The plant has the general appearance of the top portion of a ponytail palm. Leaf margins are finely serrated, like sawgrass and will cut you quite handily if you are careless.
The inflorescence varies in color, but is usually beautiful shades of light blue to a bit lavender, very striking and quite large with many branches. The plants can reach over three feet tall and wide in large clusters in nature, but in cultivation tends to remain smaller. Normally blooms only occur after forming a cluster of plants.
