Care and Culture, Classification

Probably the best known member of the genus is the urn plant, which forms an open rosette 2 ft (60cm) across of very stiff, grey-green, spine-edged leaves, banded with silver-grey.

The leaves are 2 to 3 inches (5-7.5cm) wide and form a central cup or vase which will retain water. The flower head rises from the center of the rosette to make a stiff, rather solid-looking arrangement of light purple flowers surrounded by prickly pink bracts and bract leaves. This showy flower spike lasts for several months under a wide range of temperatures, from 45 degrees F (7 degrees C) to 100 degrees F (37 degrees C).
