I'm joining with Loree at Danger in sharing this week's favorite plant. Check out the comments on her blog here to see what's catching the eye of other gardeners this week.
Honestly, I'm not a houseplant person. They usually die at my house because I often forget to water them. Enter Sansevierias that don't mind being more than a little neglected in the irrigation department. First is my latest that came home with me from a visit to Portland Nursery, Sansevieria 'Kristi' Love the wide gold variegation!
Un labeled cream variegated variety I'm guessing S. guineensis 'White Striped Giant.'
These plants are so tough that they can withstand the embarrassment of being placed in silly pots.
Not sure of this variety.
Not sure of the real name but have heard these last two referred to as Birds Nest Sansevierias.
These enjoy having a little summer vacation outside but often get left in their places indoors.
