Description:

An abundance of dense, symmetrical rosettes with wide, blue-gray foliage that forms 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 unique groundcover in mass plantings. Evergreen.
