Grows huge and beautiful. Very striking in the garden. Gets a bit top heavy and can fall over if not staked or pruned. mine get no summer water, so the leaves curl inward and they look dried out in the hot dry summer but the rosettes open right up as soon as the winter rains come. Don't overwater in summer or it will rot and fall over very quickly, though you can cut off the rotted bottom and replant in fast draining soil. A winter grower, for sure.
