Sword-like green foliage that has bright yellow centers with pinkish tinges. Very dramatic. Nodding fragrant creamy white bell-shaped flowers are borne in upright spikes above the foliage in summer. Great in the desert border or in Container in milder climate.

Water regularly as needed during growing season. Feed in spring with an all purpose fertilizer prior to new growth. Prune to remove old spent blooms. Very low maintenance.
