Provide lean to average, well-drained soil. Thrives in full sun in cool coastal areas; shelter from harsh afternoon sun and reflected heat in hot summer areas. Drought tolerant once established, but looks best with periodic water in extreme heat. The mother plant declines after flowering; younger rosettes will perpetuate the plant.
