The unusual flowers of this plant look great planted in clumps in the front of tropical or jungle themed borders. This variety has slender, upright spikes of greenish-white flowers that emerge from a basal rosette of strap-shaped light green leaves with wavy edges - and these flowerspikes are topped with a rounded cluster of small leaves that look like a spikey top-knot. They are not fully hardy in colder areas, so unless you have a sheltered spot, you should plant them into pots so they can be over-wintered in a cool greenhouse.Garden care: Water freely during the growing season and sparingly during winter. Protect the crown of the plant with a dry winter mulch or over-winter indoors under glass. Top-dress or re-pot container-grown specimens each spring.
