Description

Has a distinct blue color, giving the effect of a blue mist at a distance to the naked eye. The bluish blades in the middle image are the plant I am referring to. The digital camera in my smartphone does not well capture the "blue mist" look in the third image, to the naked eye the bluish tinge is more vivid, more striking.

Description

I kept seeing this plant when IDing plants online and kept thinking that the plant looked very familiar, but I did not know why. Turned out that the plant is growing in a corner of my own yard. Separately the front yard also includes the full size Sansevieria trifasciata. The climate here is a tad wet for the plants.
