When I was in Palm Springs recently we went to the Living Desert and took a tour of the gardens. I wanted to share one plant that I fell in love with. It looks like a cross between an aloe and mean agave.
There was also this mature specimen that was amazing:
They had some for sale but I wasn't sure I wanted to cart one back from the desert in my car. Hopefully I can find one here in L.A. and then wait ten years for it to get big and scary.
