This species is quite the beauty, its color scheme is not something you would expect, which is one of the reasons why this plant is so greatly admired. Its thin leaves end in fine points; they are pale green in color with very visible hints of black or dark gray, which unexpectedly blend together beautifully. The leaves extend out towards all directions but are more or less uniform in length. Then it blooms an inflorescence with characteristics that make it look like the exact opposite of the leaves. The inflorescence is puffy and has very vibrant pink bracts which connect to light indigo flowers. When described vocally or through text, one might think that it is not a good color combination, but once you see the plant, it will become evident that its different features do not overpower or clash against each other, but instead complement one another and make the whole plant look stunning and quite classy.
