A robust form of this new species to cultivation, which we found scattered on the over-grazed high altitude plateau of Sierra de los Cuchumatanes Guatemala in 2004. Consisting of a basal rosette of narrow strap-like leaves, with a row of stout flattened spines along each margin. With a sturdy upright branching stem to 1.5m tall, bearing umbels of spiny distinct black-darkest brown flowers backed by large bracts.
