It has a symmetrical rosette to 2 to 3 feet tall by as wide with heavy broad gray upright and slightly recurved leaves that have closely spaced small margins bearing red teeth with a reddish brown terminal spine. Plant in full sun with little irrigation required in coastal gardens but provide some supplemental irrigation in hotter inland gardens. Winter hardy to around 25 degrees. The species ranges through the semi-arid highlands between 4,000 and 7,000 feet in Oaxaca and southern Puebla.
