Locality: New Zealand -

Note: Grown from seed obtained in the early 1970's from Germany, labelled Rauh # but number either lost or we didn't get it! First flowering April 2011; plant 1.5 m high, 90cm dia. spikes to 22cm. Flowers fertile, most producing seed. Over the plant's lifetime it produced hundreds of offsets - see image AB719-3 for view of clump of offsets on one of AB719's old offsets. (no offsets on flowering plant because I took them all off in case they perished on the plant).
