Misleading name
by eartharto, August 20, 2016

Great plant, yes, rather mop-like texture... but a 1 or 2 or 3 gallon specimen that looks like a mop will inevitably get planted where it's mature size can never evolve, thus encouraging the regretful habit of shearing and losing it's wonderful form and texture.
