Silver Spear 10 seeds җ җ

Astelia chatamica or Silver spear is a hardy, clump-forming perennial with elegant silvery spear-shaped leaves. In very cold winters in exposed areas plants may suffer frost damage and may benefit from protection. During mid- to late spring long stalks of yellowish-green flowers emerge from female plants that give rise to orange berries in summer. This plant can make a dramatic feature in the garden especially when planted close to purple-foliage plants such as Aeonium 'Schwarzkopf'. It makes an unusual alternative to phormium or New Zealand flax.
