Description: Collected by Yucca Do Nursery in 2001 when Carl Schoenfeld and Wade Roitsch were driving through Ciudad de Maize, San Luis Potosi, Mexico. Wade screamed "Stop the car!" And Carl slammed on the breaks. There Mr. Ripple began its life in horticulture. At maturity, it's a 8 ft. wide by 5 ft. tall imposing plant with undulating heavily armed leaves. It's cold hardy to 10 F but will suffer leaf damage in wet climates below 20 F.
