Inconspicuous in bloom, but indispensable for foliar variety, this New Zealand native is named after Mum’s hometown on the North Island. The dense mound of small, linear, bronze leaves on wine-colored stems is useful wherever contrast of form and foliage is valued.
In our mixed border, we combine ‘Wellington Bronze’ with Lavandula ‘Ana Luisa’, Euphorbia ‘Black Pearls’ and Stipa arundinacea for an engaging array of texture and color. Cut off the small flowers to prevent seeding.
Size: 3' 0" high x 3' 0" wide.
