Stiff, grey-green leaves year-round form 2-ft+ clumps. In summer, 6 ft spikes topped with large white/pale green/pink flowers rise high above the leaves. The flowers give way later in summer to woody, decorative seed pods that persist on the stems.
Mature size: 2 ft T x 3 ft W (leaves); 6 ft T (flower spikes)
