Well yes, the foliar clumps of this succulent native to Northern Mexico are indeed lovely and dramatic with their thornless yellow and green vertically striped strappy leaves forming clumps to 3-4’ tall and wide. Quite the garden highlight! But when it blooms (in about 1 year) it is an EVENT! The foliar rosette pushing up astounding bright flamingo pink muscular stalks 5” thick and 5-6’ tall (see video online!). Emerging from pink stems and bracts are contrasting lime-green tubular bells, highly addictive to hummingbirds. Surprisingly hardy to 10 degrees - 15 degrees. DROUGHT TOLERANT, deer and rabbit resistant. Best in well-drained soil with some fertility.
