ISI 2008-29. Sansevieria trifasciata ‘Forescate’

The “mother-in-law’s tongue”, as S. trifasciata is commonly called, is exceedingly popular around the world as a durable houseplant or landscape subject in the tropics and subtropics. Some of its many sports are standbys of the nursery industry and many of the slower-growing selections are choice collector’s items. S. ‘Forescate’ is particularly sought-after for its stately leaves of vivid yellow with green margins. Divisions of HBG 65341, a plant received from K.D. Morgenstern via Kew Botanical Gardens in 1989. $35.
