Astelia

Astelia chathamica ‘Silver Spear’ full sun  partial shade

Silvery and swordlike, the stiff foliage grows in clumps and bears some resemblance to a Yucca. Highlighted with subtle bands in many shades of muted green and silver, the broad reflective leaves will make a dramatic presentation in your favorite container, or try planting Astelia as a specimen with Muhlenbergia rigens and Salvia melissodora in the rockery. Hailing from New Zealand, this unusual member of the Lily family prefers well drained soil.

Size: 3' 0" high x 3' 0" wide; hardy to zone 8.

Customer Comment:

“In a busy business, you may get lulled into thinking it's all about orders, supplies, shipping, etc.  But it's not just about that.  It's also about the happiness your flowers brought to a little girl who has endured a great deal in her young life, and the happiness that plants bring to us all, young and old.”

~Tim in New Hampshire
