  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: July
  • Hardiness: frost hardy (may need winter protection)

    A wonderful feature plant, which has a strong architectural silhoutette that lends itself well to jungle-style settings. Its broad, strap-shaped leaves are a dark olive green, but each has a pink trim to the outer edges. They form a fountain-like clump that adds structure, form and colour to the garden throughout the year. Occasionally, upright stems appear in summer bearing tubular burgundy flowers.

  • Garden care: Requires minimal pruning. In late spring remove any dead or damaged leaves and apply a balanced fertiliser and a mulch of well-rotted organic matter to stimulate vigorous, new growth.

      A:

      Hello,

      As these are not quite fully hardy then the safest option would be to plant in spring unless you have a very sheltered garden. If your soil holds water during the winter, then you should definitely wait until spring.
