Huge succulent rosette from Baja California is covered with chalky white powder which gives it a silvery glow. Spring and summer flower stems can extend to 2 feet or more and display small yellow flowers. This handsome plant is best planted where it will not be frequently watered; if in containers it can be useful to tilt them in winter so water does not collect around the crown of the plant.
