Astelia Chatamica'Silver Spear' - 3 litre pot
Unusual Evergreen Shrub
A superb architectural plant that adds drama and definition to a border.
It has pointed spear-shaped leaves that look as though they have been dusted with silver. In mid to late spring long stalks of pale yellowish green flowers may be produced from female plants, followed by orange berries in the summer.
It looks particularly good among grasses, purple-leaved plants or other plants with silver foliage.
In cold winters in exposed areas it may need some protection as it is not fully hardy.
Garden care: Provide protection during cold winters and divide plants, if necessary, in April to May
Each plant is grown in a 3 litre pot and is approx 20-25cm tall.
