Nasty spiny tip on this plant, but it has nice blue-grey leaves and a bit of filamentous 'hair' coming off each leaf. Incredibly durable plant growing in snowy to subtropical areas. Can plant it just about anywhere. Hardly ever needs water. Best look if trimmed off lower dead leaves (cafeful!). From N New Mexico and S Colorado
