One of the most striking shapes I have ever come across.  Though it isn't an established cultivar, in my opinion this is a must have.  A beautiful, star shaped rosette with leaves densely stacked that are quite brittle, more like an ixioides leaf.  Really unique flower color, and leaves that retain  purple hue throughout the year
