This popular, palm-like tree has arching, sword-like, deep redleaves, retained throughout the year. Mature trees produce dramaticwhite flower spikes that smell exquisite. It's an ideal focal pointplant for a sunny, protected border, patio or for the exotic garden.  In frost-prone areasit's best grown inside a warm greenhouse or conservatory. In time, container-grown specimens will need to be replanted in the garden.Garden care: In spring when new growth appears and all danger of hard frosts has passed, cut back frost-damaged branches to just above the newly formed shoots.
