Family Asteliaceae
Originating from New Zealand

An exciting architectural evergreen with long sword-shaped, metallic-silver leaves that seem as happy illuminating a shady woodland border as they are in sun-baked conditions, as long as the soil is fairly moisture retentive. A really useful transition plant from the full sun spiky Mediterranean beds to shadier woodland borders.
Grow in moist fertile soil in sun or shade.
