Originating from New Zealand

Dense, evergreen, grass-like perennial with tufts of upright, shiny, leaves of lustrous red and bronze tones. Produces spikes of small brown/black flowers, like tiny bulrushes, in late summer. It will tolerate some shade but leaves will possess a warmer, richer hue in sun.
Requiring very little maintenance, it does benefit from being lifted and divided every three or four years. This seems to preserve the splendid foliage colour. Always looks at its best when planted in drifts, but pretty useful in containers too.
Grow in moist but well-drained soil in sun/part shade.

Eventual mature plant size :
Height 25cm
