This rare Texas native adds another dimension to the Southwestern theme without the benefit of spines. This cutie makes a 1' wide rosette of succulent blue leaves... many covered with bright purple red spots in varying amounts. In early summer, a narrow 5' tall stalk erupts from the center of the rosette. The stalk is home to an array of attractive narrow yellow flowers... sure to garner stares and questions.
