Wow! This is really a cool plant. Very fast growing and looks like a tropical version of a hosa. At maturity the plant is about 1-2 ft. wide. Can be grown in the ground in warm climates and in pots in cooler climates. Full shade and lots of water. Blooms in the spring time with a 2 ft. tall flower spike that protrudes out of the center of the plant like a bromeliad and has upwards of 20 blooms on one spike.
