'Valley's Haka'
 

Originated by Jeroen Linneman of the Netherlands, this cultivar is a seedling of H. 'Valley's Streaked Goose' H. 'Empress Wu'. It is a giant size, non-registered cultivar with blue-green streaked variegation.

According to the originator, "The Haka is a traditional ancestral war cry, dance or challenge from the Maori People of New Zealand. It is a posture dance performed by a group. The New Zealand rugby team's practice of performing a haka before their matches has made the dance more widely known around the world."
