A real mean plant. This is just as hardy as A. americana but looks a whole lot nastier with wide leaf blades and particularly evil spines. This is best planted in full sun in good free-draining soil and left to its own devices – weed around it only if you dare! Plant with a dense rosette of fleshy, curving leaves, edged with large spines. Produces a very long flowerspike with a brigh yellow flower.
- Position:Full sun.
- Soil:Well drained soil.
- Eventual Size:2m high x 1. 5m-2m wide.
- Habit:Dense rosette of fleshy, curving leaves.
