A large growing and extremely decorative plant. The grey-green leaves are armed with large spines and are a prominent feature of the plant providing a dramatic effect. The plant develops a bulbous base and grows to form an unusual bottle-shaped rosette.
The tall, branched flower spike can reach 1,5 metre in height and lasts for many months. It has red bracts with green berry-like flowers which turn black afterwards.
Definitely a plant with lots of presence. Grow it in a container to make a bold statement or create an interesting and dramatic focal point.
