Sansevieria hyacinthoides, commonly known as mother-in-law’s tongue, a name shared with other Sansevieria species, grew this colony of erect leaf tufts in the Addo Elephant National Park.
The tufts are connected underground by thick, hard rhizomes that creep as they grow to raise these spaced, few-leaved clusters. The hard leaves vary in length and width, their margins entire and tapering to acutely pointed tips. Dark, dull green bands or blotches share the leaf surface space with pale grey ones, the surfaces smooth (Smith and Crouch, 2009; iSpot).
