Adam’s Needle is a terrific plant for problem sunny areas with dry soil. This selection forms a large evergreen rosette of leathery sword-shaped leaves, grass-green in the center with bright gold edging. When mature, the rosettes produce a very tall spike loaded with large, fragrant creamy-white flowers in late summer. An excellent specimen plant for difficult sites. Clumps may need dividing after 5 to 6 years — goggles and gloves are advised. Generally does not require any pruning. Remove faded flower stems to the base after blooming, in late summer.
