I've had a plant in the ground (southern California) for about 4 years. Full sun only rain water. Truly drought tolerant, less than 4 inches rain last year.

Robust and vigorous grower. Needs lots of space if growing with free roots. It is growing in partial shade on hillside with good drainage. This could be the centerpiece to a beautiful succulent garden. It is beginning to offset (suckers).

Large attractive species that looks a bit like a giant, sparsely leaved A angustifolia. Excellent landsape plant for larger spacies, but does tend to offset aggressively.
