Sansevieria Hahnii

Sansevieria ‘Hahnii’ is a new plant described in B. Juan Chahinian’s book The Sansevieria Trifasciata Varieties. This plant was discovered in New Orleans, at Crescent Nursery Company, by W. W. Smith Jr. and patented as a “improved variation” of Sansevieria. It is the direct parent of most other dwarf variants. The patent number for this plant is 470, and it was issued on June 3rd, 1941.

A trifasciata var. Laurentii plant produced the dwarf. The leaves grow from the tip of the stem, an extension of the underground stem or rhizome, spirally organized around it and their sides are curled upwards and they are erect while young, eventually adopting a more tilted posture and going flat and recurving backwards as they grow older.

The leaves narrow at the bottom, forming a petiole that expands at the stem’s joint. The leaves are wide and oval, usually eight to ten in number, and end in a tip that varies in length but is always short and delicate. The leaf can have a width of up to 7.5 cm (3 in.) and a length of up to 15 cm.
