Abstract

Sansevieria hargeisana (from Somalia) and S. hallii (from Zimbabwe and probably elsewhere in SE Africa) are described and compared. Both are relatively slow growing and are therefore choice collectors' items. Both are exceptionally reluctant to flower. Both were described by the Sansevieria expert Juan Chahinian in the Sansevieria Journal (Chahinian 1994, 1996) and neither is especially common in cultivation, with S. hargeisana considered rare both in the wild and in cultivation.
