    Description

    This clumping, treelike tropical plant is commonly grown for its interesting and dramatic foliage. The long-stalked, grey-green leathery leaves are arranged on erect or curving herbaceous trunks. The large, white flowers with a dark blue "tongue" emerge from a purplish-grey bract in summer. May bloom nearly year-round in mild climates. A stunning frost-tender evergreen that should be given enough space to accommodate its large size up to 30' tall and 15' wide.

    Plant care

    Prefers loamy and moist soil but can handle most other soil types, just take care to not overwater. Water regularly during the first year to aid the plant in establishing a strong root system, frequency can be reduced once established. Protect from wind to reduce the leaves from tearing and getting raggedy.
