Tropical plant whose stout, cane-like stems are clothed by broad, lance-shaped, glossy-green leaves and topped in the fall by big, football-shaped spikes of electrifying, violet-blue flowers. Grow in consistently moist but well-draining soil except during the winter when plants go through a rest period and should be kept on the dry side.
