Description

Family Asparagaceae
Originating from Mexico

Fearsome dagger-like broad leaves have stunning broad creamy white variegated markings with curly thread like fibres borne from their margins. A unique combination of textural qualities, and bright colouration makes this a stunning potted addition to patio and garden displays for summer. Requiring a frost free conservatory or greenhouse for winter, it warrants inclusion for its rugged yet elegant compact stature, making a rigid and striking architectural specimen. It rarely produces its spectacular 3m tall flower spike when grown in pots, which means that it will have a long life, as the flowering rosette dies after blooming, and offsets are very rarely produced.

Height and spread after 10 – 20 years 30cm x 50cm.
