Sansevieria pearsonii is a succulent perennial, up to 1 m, with a fan of hard, ribbed cylindric leaves, overlapping near the base. The leaves are spine-tipped at the apex. Lovely spikes of scented creamy flowers that usually open at night are followed by large orange berries that are relished by birds.
Plant in semi-shade or shade. Makes a good container plant. The thick, cylindrical leaves are also architecturally very strong and almost reminiscent of Strelitsia juncea.
