Also known as mother-in-law tongues. It is an evergreen perennial plant forming dense stands, spreading by way of its creeping rhizome, which is sometimes above ground, sometimes under ground.  


Its stiff leaves grow vertically from a basal rosette.  Mature leaves are dark green with light gray-green cross banding and usually range between 70–90 centimeters (28–35 in) long and 5–6 centimeters (2.0–2.4 in) wide.
