This is a plant I have had my eye on for quite a while, but for some reason never actually acquired one. Well, that has now been rectified. Haworthia attenuata ‘Big Band’ is a clump-forming, evergreen succulent, to 6″ high, comprising narrowly-triangular dark green leaves with wide, raised white bands. Slender stems of tubular to bell-shaped, white flowers are borne in summer.
Pronunciation: ha-WORTH-ee-a at-ten-yoo-AY-tuh

Haworthia attenuata is native to Southern Africa.
Wants a well-drained soil away from heat. Once established, water infrequently during the summer. Ideal in warm climate landscapes and container gardens.
