Top Plants For Sonoma County
Some species form woody trunks.
Tough, fibrous sword-shaped leaves culminating in sharp tips characterize this clump-forming group of succulent plants. Some are noted for silvery, blue-green tones while others are dark green, often striped or edged in yellow. A few develop stems and become small trees but most are low rosettes of varying heights and widths. Bloom season varies; flowering occurs on tall stems and is quite dramatic.
