Beschorneria septentrionalis

Beschorneria septentrionalis

Fabulous foliage, striking flowers and hardiness in dry conditions once established make this accent plant a triple threat. Beschorneria septentrionalis, commonly known as False Agave has wide strappy foliage that grows in a rosette which looks great the year round. In spring large (up to 1m tall) bright red flower spikes emerge, with green tipped, red bell-shaped flowers daintily hanging off the spike. Suitable for containers, coastal areas and drier conditions once established, this fabulous plant is likely to prove a hit with the local bird population too.
