USDA Zone 7b (+5°F)
The signature plant of the
Southwest, its one of a kind look adds to any landscape it is used in.
It remains decorative with or without its leaves, which it can grow and
shed several times a year. Multiple whip-like, spiny canes spring
skyward from a central base. Heat loving, growing up to 20 ft tall,
they can tolerate moderate cold. Red penstomin flower clusters on
each cane in the spring, leaves turn autumn gold/orange in the fall.
