Could someone help me found what is this plant ? I found it in Taiwan but it might come from elsewhere. Ty

I thought Sansevieria also but I don't think I've ever seen anything like it. Yes, stunning!

I agree, it looks like a variety of Sansevieria but I don't know which one. I also agree that it's stunning!
We have lots of Sansevieria listed in the database with photos for comparison: https://garden.org/plants/sear...

I've recently bought one called Ulimi which is part of a new range from Thailand. It looks very much like Silver Blue and is a kirkii variant.

Some sort of thistle plant. Those prickly leaves reminded me of Argemone: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/... but I'm stumped by those bract flowers.
