Description

Plumes of wintergreen rather formal glossy leaves with indignificant small brown summer flowers on this ubiquitous but still beautiful native plant of damp ground. We have used the plant often where budgets gave no alternative, to make formal hummocks that are a fantastic backdrop to more exuberant plantings.

Cultivation

Unfussy.

Maintenance

Don't cut back unless you favour a crew cut of brown stumps.
