The narrow evergreen leaves of this New Zealand native form attractive fan-like clumps and their normal green colour may take on shades of coppery-orange when grown in full sun. This can look particulary lovely when backlit. In late spring and early summer you can see bowl-shaped white flowers nestled amongst the foliage and these are followed by light brown seedheads. It looks great in either a mixed border or gravel garden.

  • Garden care: In frost-prone areas protect in winter using a thick dry mulch such as shredded bark. Divide large clumps in spring.
