Slightly slower growing that its more commonly seen blue form this plant is definitely worth the wait. The deep green strap-shaped foliage forms tight evergreen clumps from which the poker-like white flowerspikes emerge in late summer and autumn. It is a low maintenance plant which is tolerant of shade and drought although it will flower better if it gets a little sun. It looks great when planted in big swathes underneath trees where little else will grow and is especially good at controlling erosion on steep banks and slopes once it has had a chance to become established.

  • Garden care: In spring you can lift and divide large clumps.
