Info

Introduced by Don Jacob this appears very much like A. caespitosa 'Jade Ribbons' with 18" leaves, about 1" wide, tinted blue, and held very upright, but these have endearing yellow polka dots throughout. Slow growing like all cast iron plants, but growth can be hastened with fertile soil and extra summer moisture, especially where nights are cool. Like the others, capable of growing in very dark rooms (they like to hang out in bars) and of course the shadiest nooks in the garden. Frost hardy to 10 °F, USDA zone 8; zone 7 with protection.

18-20” tall upright, narrow green ribbon leaves spangled with yellow spotting form a tight, slowly expanding clump; short dark leaf sheaths at leaf bases add interest. Shade, even deep shade...grows fastest in a moist rich soil. Also an easy houseplant where light lovers won’t thrive. A genus that is sadly underused!
