Leaves are to one foot in length, glaucous gray-green with translucent margins and in stacked formations giving the impression of being pleated." Trunks are thickened and gnarly in appearance. Tubular orange flowers in spikes are often visited by hummingbirds. As this plant grows on steep slopes in habitat, it requires very porous soil with excellent drainage. Water thoroughly when dry. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended periods. Best appearance is with bright, filtered light. Protect from frost.
