With rosettes of sharply spined stiff lanceolate leaves, surrounding a flowering spike adorned by large bracts subtending the seed capsules, where the bright blue funnel-shaped flowers had been. Only forming relatively small plants where we found the seed to only about a meter tall, collected from our drive over from Pamplona to San Gil, on the Belin Paramo in the north east of Colombia in February 2015. Best grown in good light in a nutrient deficient soil/compost, that is adequately drained. Monocarpic.
