Extremely hardy - doesn't take any care at all since it's truly a native desert plant...
...although when it sends up a huge flower stalk after 20 years or so, it's days are numbered

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Use drought-tolerant plants. It's highly likely that your coastal soil is mostly sand, so forgo thirsty turfgasses and finicky plants whenever possible and opt for a water-wise alternative. This planting of century plant (Agave americana, zones 7 to 10), blue fescue (Festuca glauca, zones 4 to 8), kangaroo paw (Anigozanthos 'Red Cross', zones 9 to 11) and crown of thorns (Euphorbia milii, zones 9b to 11) is cohesively colorful and thrives on neglect.

Sand-Tolerant PlantsAs a general rule, drought-tolerant plants will perform well in dry, sandy soil that is well draining. Additionally, plants that are drought tolerant will also survive the nutrient-poor conditions of sandy soils. Your garden beds can be amended with compost, but using the right plants will mean less work in the long term. This garden features a mix of strong-formed agaves along with grasses, wildflowers and additional succulents. All of these plants are drought tolerant and will survive in well-draining, sandy soil.
