The leaves have incredibly sharp tips so care must be taken when handling this plant. When it flowers it sends up a spectacular 3m spike with golden flowers. Great in a large pot or in the ground. Matures at 1mx1m at about 5 years. These succulent tropical perennials are grown for their large, stiff, sword-shaped leaves arranged in tight rosettes.
