Info

A tough-as-nails species, closely related to A. parryi but with narrower, deep blue leaves held upright and out and adorned with gray marginal spines and long, terminal brownish red spines. Slow growing to an eventual 1-2' tall x 2-3' wide, offsetting to form colonies. After 15 years or so, produces yellow flowers on a 12' stalk! Full sun and lean, well-drained soil with little, if any, summer water. This native of southeastern New Mexico is one of the hardiest species; to -20 °F, USDA zone 5, with good drainage.
