This is an unusually beautiful plant whose shiny green leaves with dark, hieroglyphic cross bands totally outshine its tall green flower spike bearing pale cream flowers. Given some 10 years, the rosette can spread to about 1.5 metres, earning it the common name of King of Bromeliads.
An unusually attractive foliage plant with mottled leaves, Manfreda maculosa Texas Tuberose also known as rattlesnake agave is a great choice for rock gardens. It can take full sun to partial shade with a well drained soil mix. Needs very less water. Plants are watered only enough to keep the foliage from shriveling.
A classic cross between the considerably darker, burgundy variety with the dark burgundy-purple floral bract and the brighter, red variety with the red branching bract that could give either colour, or in some cases, a mix of colours. A beautiful specimen, either ways.
This large-leafed stunner can grow a metre tall and a metre wide. It has thick, leathery leaves with rich, chocolate brown tones and creamy green bands. The leaves tend to arch more and intensify in colour with age, making it a great specimen plant for patios or decks partially shaded from the sun. Prefers partial shade. This is cross between original fosteriana rubra and red chestnut which is equally beautiful.
This evergreen perennial has smooth, green leaves with brownish-red bands leaves and is grown as much for its beautiful foliage as its scarlet red bloom that gives it its name of ‘Flaming Sword’. Prefers semi-shade with a few hours of sunlight every day.
