Comments: This is a succulent, native of Mexico, that makes an excellent accent specimen in the garden. It produces large heads of yucca-like, silvery-green, somewhat drooping foliage and tall stalks of white flowers in spring. Repored to be quite drought tolerant and suitable for xeriscape landscapes.
