It really looks pretty royal to me.

That's one of the most bizarre looking plants I've ever seen, but I love it. :D Very interesting structure. It looks a bit ghostly against all the green of the other vegetation.

And they are very tall when full-grown, so you can't miss them. It's just astonishing when a bunch of them standing close together and even more when the sun lights the blueish-silvery leaves. One day I'll try to have some in my own garden *G*

I'm glad you like it :happybounce:

I'd love to see some in person one day. The way you describe them, it sounds like they would be an impressive sight to see up close. :la: Good luck with planting some in the future! I think they'd be great to have in a garden since they're so pretty.

Well, if you should find yourself one day in Germany all of a sudden, just write and I can tell you at least two places where they grow. :D And I'm pretty sure I'll find some more.

And thanks :) Could still take a few years before I have my own garden, but when the time comes I'll spam you all with new pictures :D
