This variety has 10–15 rigid, strap-like, slightly arched, green leaves that are 1-1/2 inches (36 millimeters) wide, with scaly-white overtones and dark violet at the tips.
The most prevalent type is A. fasciata, another name for it. It features grayish-green foliage and a fist-sized bract that is clear pink and flecked with small blue blooms.
A. fulgens discolor is a plant significantly smaller than A. rhodocyanea, with a more open rosette and leaves that are red on the underside and green on the top. Along the stem, purple flowers are dispersed.
