I lust for COPPER in the plant world!! This spiky character has swords to 12-14" tall with a copper twinge that really lights up like a new penny during the colder months! Evergreen foliage has a stiletto silhouette, clump expands on rhizomes – Full sun to a bit of shade – most soils – not fussy – Airy little clusters of white flowers in May – This is also quite a specimen in a copper color container! A New Zealander that seems quite content here in the PNW.

Info

Valued for its richly coloured orangey-bronze, erect, iris-like foliage that is especially pretty backlit by the sun. The foliage is evergreen, or I should say everorange, and looks great 365 days a year. The small creamy white flowers appear intermittently and are lightly fragrant. The orange colouration in the leaves is more intense when plants are stressed so don't baby them. Give them lean, well-drained soil in sun.

Info

A perennial herb related to the iris that spreads slowly by short rhizomes. The stiff, sword-like leaves grow to 2' tall and are an unusual orange-green color with conspicuous orange-brown veins; they are particularly attractive when backlit as they appear to glow in warm, fiery tones. Small white flowers appear on short stalks tucked among the foliage in spring. Plant in sun or moderate shade, with moist but well-drained, slightly acid soil. Well placed at poolsides, as an accent plant, or in containers. Hardy to 15 °F. New Zealand.

Evergreen or in this case everorange stiff blades which complement the starry white flowers in late spring makes this New Zealander an invaluable addition to the garden.
