Found near drainage systems in desert scrub and elevation from 1300-3000 ft. Tolerates extreme heat and full sun with minimal supplemental irrigation. Flower stalks produce pale green flowers and rosettes to 2 to 3 ft tall with straight upright medium light green 2 ft long leaves with small teeth widely spaced along the margin. No shipping.
