Valued for its richly coloured orangey-bronze, erect, iris-like foliage that is especially pretty backlit by the sun. The foliage is evergreen, or I should say everorange, and looks great 365 days a year. The small creamy white flowers appear intermittently and are lightly fragrant. The orange colouration in the leaves is more intense when plants are stressed so don't baby them. Give them lean, well-drained soil in sun.
Sandy or peaty soils in coastal sites such as beaches, dune systems, river mouths, estuaries, and coastal scrub.
