From a distance, it appears as a tall spike of yellow flowers. A clumping plant that grows to several feet wide, and the spiny-edged leaves are 18 inches high and 3 inches wide. This plant also spreads by rhizomes or basal lateral shoots to produce new plants and so colonies of plants are formed. It should have good drainage and little water.
