Huge succulent rosette from Baja California has bright medium green leaves. The most commonly cultivated form of this species has silvery white leaves, but green forms do occur regularly in its native habitat. 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.
