  • Soil: moist, fertile, peaty soil
  • Rate of growth: average

    The strap-shaped foliage of this architectural evergreen has a silver-bronze flush, and in lower temperatures, red tints start to become more apparent. Forming a fountain-like clump, it makes a handsome specimen in larger pots, but will also add a touch of drama to the border.

  • Garden care: Provide protection during cold winters and divide plants, if necessary, in April to May.
