This elegantly poised beauty currently goes under either of these two names. Elegantly recurved spineless leaves margined in bright cream. This is an excellent indoor plant with smooth leaves are not as hard or stiff as its desert brethern, thus easier to trundle out of your plantroom or greenhouse for a summer of showing off on your patio or deck, without serious damage imflicted upon the human trundlers. This is the perfect candidate for that semi-formal urn to accent a structured garden design. We thank Ruud Cuhfus for helping determine the more currently correct name for this excellent houseplant.
|Cultural Code||HP TGH|
Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.
If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.×
