Moderate-growing palm-like evergreen tree typically growing 6-10’ tall or greater with age, likely producing multiple heads as it matures. This attractive variety features narrow, gracefully arching, sword-like, deep-olive-green leaves accented with a prominent coppery-pink center stripe. With age, showy spikes of sweetly-scented white flowers rise above the attractive foliage late-spring to summer. Tolerates coastal conditions, though protection from direct sea wind is recommended as well as some shaded protection from summer sun in hotter inland areas. Great for adding a tropical appearance to the landscape and is ideally suited for pool or patio areas, in the ground or in containers. While somewhat drought tolerant once established, a more robust-looking specimen will be achieved with moderate watering in a well-drained soil. Thrives in a partial to full sun exposure.
