  • Regular price $15.00

Full sun or shade; low to regular water. A beautiful, variegated selection with a fine white variegation along the pale green leaf margins. Forms a large cluster to 4-5ft tall by about twice as wide with individual rosettes 4-5ft wide atop a stout gray stem to 4ft tall. The wide pale green pliable leaves emerge from a tight central spear to arch gracefully back, looking a bit like a large open green flower and provide a nice foil to the white margins. Mature plants send up a 5-10ft vertical flower stalk that reflexes back towards the round before arching upward again. The flowers are a pale greenish yellow and are followed by seed pods and many new "plantlets". Plant in full coastal sun to shade in moist or dry soils (looks best with regular watering). Tolerates seaside conditions but it will usually be damaged in temperatures below 28° F.
