Also known as Sansevieria gentilis.
Plants grow from a branching rhizome with offsets leading to a clump of plants.
A stem a few mms long holds up to 6 leaves.
The leaves are wider (up to 12.5 cm) and less erect than those of Sansevieria trifasciata.
They are dark green and the paler green bands are less distinct and more broken up.
The leaf has a narrow reddish-brown edge.
There are many white flowers along the 60 to 80 cm high inflorescence spike.
