Recently assigned to the family Asparagaceae, the genus Sansevieria counts about 70 species, nearly all native to Africa, Arabia and Madagascar. Perennial herbs adapted to dry habitats with stiff, succulent leaves, their length ranges from a few centimeters to 2 meters. Sansevieria trifasciata and its many cultivars are among the most popular houseplants, popularly called mother in law's tongue.
