  • Light Needs
    Full sun
  • Watering Needs
    Once established, needs only occasional watering.

Dense, symmetrical rosettes of wide blue-gray leaves are abundant, developing large clumps. Bloom spikes emerge from older rosettes, which die after flowering - the plant is perpetuated by "pups" or offshoots. A bright accent in the waterwise landscape or a nice groundcover when mass planted.
