Very slow growing "Ebony Hemp" Rough surface of blackish-green. Very distinctive rugose surfaced extremely vertical foliage makes this a curosity in any collection. Ken Frieling found this unique curiosity in a random heap in a central Florida roadside nursery too many years ago for him to admit the date. If anyone has...
Stock Number: 68205
Long flexible creamy yellow, nearly translucent leaves with gray-green milky center and narrow dark green rims. Regular upright rosettes of trifasciata--not the irregular wavy foliage of guineensis although the coloration is similar! Astounding. Our clone was bought at Manda's Greenhouse decades ago--an heirloom totall...

Stock Number: 68223
Remarkable erect tulip-shaped rosette of black-green leaves with bright gold rim. Habit similar to nelsonii or to a giant incurved 'Loops's Pride' but more ornate than either of these. Unique very slow growing treasure from Ruth Crane's remarkable collection.
Stock Number: 68415
Juan Chahinian's clone: Dark out arched thick leaves with central bundle of bright lime pinstripes along billowing groves set off with rich buttery yellow margins showing barely a trace of crossbands. Somewhat compact in stature, easy to grow by nature even though quite slow to establish, and very pleasant on the eyes....

Large beautiful "Bowl Hemp" European import with unusually wide leaves richly mottled and banded yellow. Handsome and very reliable houseplant of the first order. Originally an European import of obscure origin (although reportedly purchased in Italy initially by Tony Falco); sometimes distributed as S. gigantea. Possi...
Stock Number: 68226
Clone from Ed Eby with tight rosettes of large wide waxy leaves rimmed with golden cream edge--no wide border. This is an unusually slow growing clone with few offsets. Sometimes sports a stripe appearing in mid-leaf. Not as showy or fast growing as the basic 'Futura' but of interest to the collector. The second pictur...

Highly variegated and very thick leaves tend to arch out in proper light. In the general "Futura group" perhaps as openly vase forming leaves (the Dutch would say "tulip shaped") are more open and shorter than typical trifasciata cultivars. The inner emerging leaf on mature plants can be totally golden. Nearly the oppo...
Stock Number: 68432
Slightly slimmer than regular 'Futura,' the bright olive leaves with goldbanded edges form an unique sideways twist. Always a serious visual tweak in any assemblage of Sansevieria cultivars.
Stock Number: 68172
Selection from Ruth Crane who claimed to have named it thus before she traded it with other collectors: The defuring distinction of this cultivar is that golden-yellow banding on either side of the thick waxy leaves does not match. `Lillian True' (a remarkable California collector with whom Crane traded plants) may be ...
Stock Number: 68171
Very dark green thick lance leaves with broad butter yellow marginal bands & faint marbled banding; popular for color contrast and erect habit. Our form is from the Manda's Nursery's important collection of original cultivars, obviously similar to 'laurentii compacta' which may merely be one of several new Florida ...
Stock Number: 68343
Typical trifasciata habit with very erect dark toned slim leaves--no gray tones appear--distinguished by furling tops & rich thick (but very narrow) creamy gold rims; not a typical laurentii type. We have increased our stock block in order to accomodate the increasing orders for this quite distinctive tall cultivar...

Stock Number: 68230
Narrow upright leaves of gray-green (not silvery) usually edged in darker green; compact upright; not 'Silver Queen'-- Manda's `Plumbea' and the Florida `Silver Parva' appear to be apparently alternative trade names. One of the best smaller forms, but slow to offset.

The original "Birdsnest Plant" Cup-shaped tight rosette of broad spiral leaves dark green with paler crossbanding; freely suckers to form a clump. Found in New Orleans in 1939 and considered to be trifasciata trapped in a juvenile form. Common as dirt, but still totally reliable and cute as a button.
Stock Number: 68179
Slim edge of creamy white to yellow on very open rosette of thin leaves. Not widely margined as is the far more vigorous and showier 'Hahnii Margined.' Uncommon as is slow to offset and thus for the collector focused on having a "complete set" of the dishy hahnii tribe.

"Golden Birdsnest." Grow in a porous mix and avoid chill. This is the clone originating in Hahn's Pittsburg greenhouses ages ago with wide creamy yellow variegation on an open widespreading rosette. Quite beautiful.
Stock Number: 68413
"Jade Birdsnest Plant" One of the most distinctive of the Hahni group as the foliage displays no markings or chevrons on the gorgeous deep jade surfaced thick substanced leaves of deep mahogany green-- the somewhat sheened pointed leaves thickly overlap to form tight upright cups.
Stock Number: 60980
"Rimmed Birdsnest Plant" One of the most distinctive of the Hahni group as the foliage has no markings or chevrons, but rather, a most bold golden margin to contrast with the deep jade green of the main body. The contrast is stunning.
Stock Number: 68189
"Tartan Birdsnest" Vigorous large cupped rosettes with clear plaid-like dark green crossbanding; very popular. Much larger than the rest of the group. This originated long ago at Manny Singer's remarkable nursery.
Stock Number: 68397
A handsome new selection distributed by the Polans from the "Golden Birdsnest Hahnii" of strong substance: A bold pewter gray central chevron separates the golden cream center of each leaf from the dark thick green margin. Very distinctive & stable. But slow growing.
Stock Number: 68414
"Banded Birdsnest Plant" Eventually larger than regular hahnii (with a full complement of showy green crossbanding with criss crosses) with broad cream yellow margins. Do not confuse with the hopelessly slow growing 'Crosby's Marginata.'
Stock Number: 68193
"Seibert's Hahnii" Open furled rosettes of typical hahnii leaves decorated with regularly appearing central soft yellow-ochre stripes--never ever displays banded rims. Subtlely beautiful.
Stock Number: 68194
Small rosettes of corrugated, embossed leaves of gray-green irregularly striped silver-gray, cream-yellow, ochre, and edged in darker green. No two offsets are precisely alike. Must be kept perfectly drained & constantly warm. Tempermental: given to fits of rot if allowed to chill. Best grown in litegardens.
Stock Number: 68198
"Banded Birdsnest" Metallic gray-green wide leaves margined in creamy yellow margins. Beautiful out-flared wide cupped rosettes become larger than most hahnii cultivars. This tulip-shaped cultivar is slow to offset, thus scarce. Extremely sensitive to chill and intolerant of low light intensity and thus perfect for lig...
Stock Number: 68196
Very compact recurved rosettes of dark leaves each centered with bright white-gray solid area. Selected and named by Ken Frieling here at the Glasshouse Works greenhouses--a random `Silver Frost' sport from leafcuttings which remained amazingly stable. Sent to Ruth Crane who later distributed this as `Silver Streak' &a...

"Full Moon Hemp" Rather than silvery gray, this slow growing laurentii type from Japan has rich pearly olive leaves edged yellow-ochre; faint chevrons appear in bright light. Very bright showy cultivar which must have reliable heat and full sunlight to achieve its pearly tones.
Stock Number: 68235
Irregular central stripes of subtle yellow & ochre--the faint color becomes more sobvious as the leaf ages. Slow to offset, but seldom seen outside personal collections. Not ever a showy bold variegation.
Stock Number: 68248
Short thickened dirvish-curved strapleaves of waxy green with odd ochre-olive margins--the whole stippled with decorative darker bands. Marvelous totally unique clone shared with us by Alice Waidhofer who named this impressive beauty. Always in demand for it's unique presence and unusually succulent substance.
Stock Number: 77236
Also marketed from time to time as `Silver Moon' or `Moonglo.' Handsome large open vase of creamy silver-green wide overlapping leaves--certainly one of the most beatiful of all the truely reliable houseplants. European introduction of obscure derivation; always a visual treat. Has the same habit as 'Futura,' but there...
