A dramatic Cape Flora waterside plant with clumps of sword-shaped leaves and tall spikes of lovely yellow flowers in summer. Leaves up to 1m tall and flower spikes up to 2.5m tall.
Plants prefer wet conditions in full or partial sun, but they can also grow in the garden with plenty of water. They will tolerate frost to -1°C and up to -7°C with protection, and are perhaps hardier than expected as they grow in warmer western UK gardens under the influence of the gulf stream.
Plants look great in a garden with Aristea major and nicely combined with Arum Lily (Zantedeschia aethiopica) on a waterside position. Flowering from the third or fourth season – it takes time and effort, but is worth it.
