AGM. A dramatic architectural, evergreen perennial with stiff, spine-tipped leaves striped and edged creamy-yellow. Bell-shaped cream flowers in broad panicles appear in late summer and early autumn. Jul-Sep. H200cm S120cm.
Very frost hardy but intolerant of wet. Requires very sharp drainage and as much sun as possible. Good on sandy, coastal soils. Excellent subject for container planting. This plant needs to be handled with care as the spikes on the end of the leaves are very sharp..
