Sometimes called the Spanish Dagger. Stiff, strongest spine tipped green leaves. Huge flower spikes of creamy-white flowers when mature.
Eventually, it will develop a woody trunk with a more tree-like form. The plant is heat, humidity, drought and salt tolerant and can tolerate cold and snow. The large panicles of white bell-shaped flowers are a show-stopper and occur late spring to mid-summer.
It prefers well-drained sandy soils in full sun but tolerates most soils if they are well-drained and some shade. It is often used as a container plant and can be grown as a house plant. Perfect for the rock or drought-tolerant garden.
