A beautiful solitary rosette forming succulent to 2 feet tall by 3 feet wide with broad blue gray leaves that are broadest toward the middle and have faint longitudinal lines and reddish brown regularly spaced small spines along the margins. This fast growing plant blooms at a relatively young age producing an erect spike to 6 feet tall with short peduncles each bearing multiple pale yellow flowers. Plant in full sun in well drained soil. It withstood the frosts of January 2007 in a garden in a cold location of Santa Barbara where temperatures dropped to around 22 F and this plant was not damaged.
