Aciphylla is a most unusual genus of plants, native to New Zealand with one exception. It belongs in the Apiaceae and is thus related to carrot, parsley, dill, celery etc. In appearance however, Aciphylla has little in common with these vegetables but rather has thick, very hard, spiky foliage in rosettes much more reminiscent of certain Agave or Yucca. A. glaucescens is a truly superb, larger species with somewhat flaccid, tripinnate, beautifully glaucous leaves to over 1 m (3 ft.) tall with long and narrow leaflets. It is native to the mountains on the North Island of New Zealand. In cultivation it will do best in cool or cold temperate, oceanic climates, where it requires a sunny or only lightly shaded spot. It does not like high summer temperatures and is a perfect replacement for Agave and Yucca in such climates. It prefers slightly acidic soils. For best germination results, keep seeds after sowing at around 20°C (68°F) for two to four weeks, then expose to light frost for about a month, finally keep around 10°C (50°F) for germination. This process simulates winter and is required to break down germination inhibitors. Germination may occasionally still take months, sometimes over a year before sprouting.
