Sanseveria 'Ed Eby' before potting.
'Ed Eby' is of hybrid origin and shall have been rescued by the eponymee from the USDA-planting of Sansevierias at Koko-Crater, Hawaii. The putative parental species are S. canaliculata x S. pearsonii (Jankalski). Its leaves are rough like fine sandpaper.
Sansevieria ‘Ed Eby’ was validly published by Jankalski in Sansevieria No. 15: 9 (2006). ‘Ed Eby’ is a new name for Sansevieria patens hort. not N.E. Brown (1915). Sansevieria patens N.E. Brown (1915) can not certainly be identified, and the plant traded under that name was given the name ‘Ed Eby’.
