Buy Libertia chilensis libertia ( syn. Libertia grandiflora ): Great for a gravel garden

  • Position: full sun or light shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: May to July
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Reliable and long-lived perennial which provides attractive vertical accents to a planting. Sword like leaves encircle slender wiry stems. Simple pure white flowers open progressively up each stem to culminate in a fine airy show. Associates well with fine grasses like Stipa tenuissima in a gravel planting, or with simple daisies like Anthemis 'Sauce Hollandaise' in the front of a border.

  • Garden care: Selectively cut out old foliage to reveal attractive new growth. Dislikes a waterlogged soil. Divide congested plants in spring or autumn. Leave flower spikes to mature and form attractive seed heads which will self-seed if permitted.

High hopes for next year


My Libertia is about 40cm tall after one planting season and has remained flowerless all summer. But I have high hopes for next year as I have specified this plant previously, when it came into its own after some delay. Patience.

I wouldn't buy this again, based on the first years growth.


Limited growth this year, great soil, plenty of sun, I will see how it performs next year. Very few flowers in the first year.
