Description

Family Iridaceae
Originating from Chile, Argentina

  • Architectural low clumps of silver/green sword-shaped foliage
  • Abundant spikes of beautiful pale yellow flowers.
  • Easy to grow, forming slowly spreading clumps.

A massive pale yellow floral display of upright spikes, bearing many individual starry blooms, lasting for several weeks during May and June. Its uniquely colored flowers are pale yellow, stained with a deeper golden hue, with delicate stripes along the length of each petal, giving a richness to their color that sets them apart from other yellow-flowered species. When large clumps are in full flower, with multitudes of flower spikes, it makes for an arresting sight.

The fine flowering display is complemented by its stiff blades of grey-green leaves, which look great throughout the season. Slowly spreading to form an easily controlled clump, they create a natural-looking colony. Rambling amongst taller plants, they can fulfill an important role in planting compositions, making a convincingly wild-looking understory (where ‘solid’ communities of plants are desired), in full compositions amongst taller, slender species such as cordylines and yuccas that do not cast too much shade.

An adaptable evergreen perennial, it looks at home in most styles, particularly suiting Mediterranean gardens. It thrives in dry sandy soil and full sun and the stiffly upright iris-like foliage and erect flower spikes add to the spiky effect. It is easy to grow in pots and is undemanding, happy in coastal conditions in full sun or light shade.

Mature height and spread after 1 – 2 years 80cm x 50cm
