      As seen on TV and so synonymous with the wild west and deserts in general to perhaps be considered little more than a cliché among those unfamiliar with its grandeur and natural habitat in the Mojave Desert.

      Rigid, blue-green, lance-like leaves encircle a thick trunk, becoming bare and fissured with age, eventually branching to form a tree like canopy increasing in splendour with passing centuries to appear prehistoric or alien-like. In maturity dense panicles of creamy-white flowers are borne from the tips of its branches.

      Seemingly quite growable given rapidly draining, lean soil and the occasional drink. The indulgent conditions of cultivation should see a decent sized specimen within a lifetime though with a large root system it is likely to amount to no more than a bonsai if kept potted too long. We'll collaborate success stories in a few decades.

      Ultimately hardy to heat, cold and drought, if it dies you smothered a family heirloom with inappropriate love.

      A succulent that is merely an attractive clumping perennial for the garden, not a precious for the collection, with rosettes of soft sword-like glaucous leaves heavily margined in cream that tints copper with age. Grandiose panicles of hanging cream bells are held aloft during summer.
      From south eastern North America, semi deciduous here and utterly cold tolerant. Equally at home in the perennial border or simulated desertscape.

      Easily grown in any sunny, well drained soil, I find it less tolerant of wet feet in winter than many of the arborescent species. Drought tolerant but summer water is highly beneficial.
