The Silver Desert Spoon has a ribbon-like, twisting, curling, blue green foliage adds texture to the landscape. The leaf margins are lined with fine thorns that meet at the base to form a small spoon. It is also drought tolerant. It also works well with evergreen specimen for large containers and serves as a beautiful accent to a xeric rock garden or water-wise border. It is stunning in mass plantings in larger landscapes.
