A BIT MORE...

This South African perennial is coveted for its creamy white flowers that emerge among long (1 ½ feet) leaves in late winter or early spring. They will ultimately become 2-4 feet tall with 8 inch long flowers reaching just above the leaves. A yellow spike emerges from the center of each flower bract. It relishes moisture and appreciates light shade in hot climates. The shiny emerald green foliage is furled and handsome. Best in Western Garden zones 5, 6, 8, 9, and 12-24.
