Unusual architectural plant! Stiff, upright stems; blue-green, yucca-like, spiny leaves; greenish-white flower clusters are globular and firm, and don’t look like they would support all the insects they do.
Prefers dry, sandy soils. May be an aggressive self-seeder. Tap-rooted plant that withstands drought but does not transplant easily.
Special value to native bees and supports beneficial insects.
