Info

This toasty-hued New Zealand native is highly treasured for narrow, rich mahogany blades arching up and out from its base to forge a burnished tuft warmed by reddened accents. Tiny, Bulrush-like, hooked flowers are elevated above the tidy, low growing evergreen clump that flourishes in cool moist places but sulks in excessive heat. Massed at water's edge or nestled in a cobalt blue container, Uncinia rubra strikes a stunning pose with Bergenia 'Bressingham Ruby's textural leaves or the rounded foliage of Lysimachia 'Aurea' as a golden counterpoint.
