Desert Spoon

The Desert Spoon has a thick, short trunk. The leaves are a cool, grey colour with spiky, dry, caramel-brown split ends. They are drought- and wind-resistant, with a tolerance for extreme heat and low temperatures. Over-watering seems to have no effect. They are also an extremely handsome focal plant.
