    The slender, yellow-edged leaves look almost luminous when they first emerge in spring, and offer year round colour - which is particularly useful winter, when many other plants are looking decidedly lacklustre! Its distinctive, columnar shape also adds to its appeal, as it will gradually add height, without taking up too much room. Use it to add formality and architectural interest to the garden.

  • Garden care: Trim or renovate in late summer or early autumn.
  • CAUTION toxic if eaten
