Sansevieria suffruticosa

Sansevieria suffruticosa 'Frosty Spears' - A very distinctive and slow growing plant that with time forms a clump of open rosettes of upwardly arching cylindrica leaves. The younger leaves have a concave inner side that runs the length and are shorter and more arching. More mature leaves are to 18 inches long and completely cylindrical and smooth. These leaves emerge a silvery white color and darken to a pale blue green color and are horizontally banded in blue green with very narrow pinstripe longitudinal lines as well. Aerial stolons are produced which allows the clump to expand. Grow in very bright light to maintain strong pale coloration. Sansevieria suffruticosa group is noted for its relative cold tolerance and this plant may be able to be used outdoors in Southern California in locations such as under an eave that is sheltered from winter rainfall and frost. Sansevieria suffruticosa is from Kenya but there is considerable confusion regarding this plant and its origin as there apparently were multiple clones that used this name. One named cone has the cultivar name 'Blue Clone' and is thought to have thinner and smaller leaves. Another thought is that this plant is actually a cultivar of the Somalian species Sansevieria phillipsiae. Information from San Marcos growers.
