Comments: This is a strong accent plant that produces a stiff rosette of green sword-shaped leaves with creamy-white margins. Provide full sunlight and dry soils for century plants. At maturity it will eventually produce a nie foot floral stalk coming out of the center of the plant with greenish-yellow flowers. Because of the very stiff leaves with sharp points keep plants at a safe distance from people, especially children.
