From attractive clumps of silvery-green, hairy, sword-like leaves, arise panicles of white flowers in summer, followed by purple-pink fruits in autumn. Forming dramatic foliage, this superb, hardy, evergreen architectural plant from New Zealand is perfect for coastal gardens, or anywhere there is some shelter, and especially adding a tropical feel to the garden, particularly in areas of partial shade.
These seeds have already been thoroughly cleaned and cold-stored for several months.
