Oh I love this thing. When you see it in the wild you just stand there and gape for a while. Absolutely stunning, showy, gorgeous, and evergreen! The rosette is a glossy silvery green with toothed edges, you could spot it anywhere.
The large, pink flowers are scented and stand up to 3' tall. Allow to reseed to create a stand. I collect it at 6,800' and it doesn't seem to naturalize above 7,500'. Higher elevations - it is worth growing as an annual. Wow.
30-45 days moist stratification or plant in fall. Barely cover the seed with sand.
