    • 1997, Louise Beebe Wilder, What Happens in My Garden, page 129:
      The funkias, or plantain lilies, as they are called because of their broad ribbed foliage, are as Victorian as antimacassars or chaperons; but there is about them a certain dignity and civility often characteristic of the properties of the Victorian Age []
