Evergreen succulent with rosette-forming foliage to 2-3′ tall x 3-4′ wide. This rugged and rough textured species features 6-7 wide powdery blue-gray leaves with heavily undulated strong-toothed margins and interesting whitish colored patterning on the leaf surface. Around 15 years of age red buds atop a 10′ tall stem appear eventually opening to lovely shades of yellow and orange. Requires a well-drained soil and has very low water requirements once established. Full sun.
