Standing straight and bright green, the pleated all-season foliage forges a bold, sword-shaped presence for the back of the garden. Eye catching flower stems develop short side branches, each presenting several good-sized starry golden orange flowers with darker markings on their lower petals.

This long blooming South African native is easy to grow in moist heavy soils, and for a real surprise, dig down to see its otherworldly, dayglow orange roots.

Size: 4' 0"–6' 0" high x 2' 0"–3' 0" wide. 8/9
