Another bold non-agave from northeastern Mexico, producing rosettes to 2 ft of deep green, 4" leaves, the plant resembling a pile of hung-over starfish. The flowers, on red stems, are deep red edged with green and followed by red tinted seed pods. Drought tolerant but loves a little summer water along with excellent drainage and partial shade to full sun. Essentially a USDA zone 8 plant though success has been achieved in USDA zone 7 gardens with occasional protection.

Thick lance like leaves create a launching pad for shocking red flower spike. Does best with summer water. 5' tall x 3' wide.
