A plant Sean knew at the Berkeley Botanic garden, now sometimes sold as Y. aloifolia 'Purpurea'. Leaves are somewhat soft and arching, green with purplish highlights in summer, turning more red in winter temperatures. Very tropical. To 4-6'. Sun to part sun and well-drained, lean soil with only occasional summer water once established. Frost hardy to 15 to 20 °F, mid USDA zone 8. An outstanding pot plant.
