This golden-variegated sport grows to form multiple rosettes of soft gray green leaves to 3 to 5 feet tall that have an attractive central stripe of yellow.

Hardy to less than 15 F - Beschorneria yuccoides is the hardiest species of Beschorneria. Beschorneria was named in honor of Friedrich Wilhelm Christian Beschorner 1806-73, a German amateur botanist. This plant was a mutation discovered on a non-variegated Beschorneria yuccoides in a garden near Hamilton, New Zealand in 2005 by landscape designer Graeme Burton of Ohaupo, New Zealand. It received US Plant Patent 22,162 on September 27, 2011. This plant is also marketed using the name "Reality" and is very similar to a plant sold in Australia as 'Colourwise'.
