An early hybrid introduced by DeMeyer/DeRouck nursery is still a popular beauty. A cultivar of lingulata x squarrosa it is normally solid green leaved, but there are albomarginated and variegated versions.
Our plant is the albomarginated form; a large and graceful rosette to 24 inches across, it has 2 inch wide leaves with brilliant white margins. The inflorescence is similar to the lingulata parent, a stellate head of bright red. A spectacular plant that is easy to grow and long lasting in color.
