Sansevieria Cylindrica Twisted is a rhizomatous, succulent perennial native to tropical southern Africa. Mature clumps will reach up to 6′ tall and spread to fill a 2′ area. Will slowly form dense colonies from underground, spreading rhizomes. The grey-green leaves have variable, horizontal, dark green stripes and are cylindrical in shape, narrowing to a point at their tips. The leaves emerge from a fan-shaped rosette and can reach up to 6′ tall and 1″ wide. An upright, spike-like inflorescence will emerge from the center of the rosettes rarely if grown indoors or seasonally if grown in the ground outdoors. The inflorescences can reach up to 3′ tall with 1″ long, tubular, white blooms. Plants are sometimes grown in braided forms.
