Slow to moderate growth rate to 10'. Fleshy soft pointed leaves 2-3'. Often several erect stems that become thick and woody. White bellshaped flowers in late summer. Southeastern USA. Full sun to part shade but no reflected sun. Drought tolerant. Best with well drained soil. Extreme sun exposure in the desert can lead to yellowing and sunburning.
