Sansevieria trifasciata

The number of times I have seen this plant flowering can be counted on the fingers of one hand. Without the delicate sprigs of flowers, the leaves are mundane-looking. With common names like "Snake Plant" and "Mother-in-Law's tongue", it is no wonder the plant is unimpressive.
