Most effective en masse, this cultivar’s stiff, spiky leaves comprise a closely set, evergreen rosette. Outlined in green, they flex slightly and are marked down the center with a bold, creamy gold stripe, and an added luster is achieved from long, silvery margin fibers.Each year, stout leafless stems bear large clusters of waxy, alabaster-colored floral pendants. Needing little or no maintenance and thriving best in well drained soil, plants will not complain where summers are hot or humid, or long and dry.
