A striking upright grower, well suited for either garden or patio pot presentation. In summer rich creamy flower clusters contrast boldly against rich reddish-purple sword-shaped arching leaves. An exotic-looking "evergreen" plant that is a favourite among modern structural plantings.
Bold and richly-coloured structural plant.
Excellent patio, container and garden specimen.
Sun or shade, needs reasonable drainage. Shelter from all but the lightest frost in cooler parts of Zone 9.
Little needed. Feed and tidy foliage from time to time. Watch for slug damage and talk to your local garden centre if evident.
