Sansevieria “Fernwood”, also known as Sansevieria canaliculata, is an erect plant with long, leathery, cylindrical leaves, tapering to a sharp point, which emerge in clumps from underground rhizomes, or stems. They are closely related to Dracaenas (they are now more correctly classified as a Dracaena). The leaves are strongly variegated and can be up to 60cm long in some varieties. “Fernwood” is a small variety with slender leaves that grow almost vertically from the ground. Small, simple, fragrant white flowers are produced, but these are seldom noticeable.
Sansevieria canaliculata is one of approximately seventy species of Sansevieria, all of which are evergreen perennials native to the semi-deserts of southern and western Africa. Sansevieria canaliculata is native in Mozambique, Tanzania and Madagascar. Sansevieria is named after an Austrian prince of Sanseriero. They were introduced to Europe in the late seventeenth century
