Astelia chathamica 'Silver Spear' is a superlative plant: their upright, evergreen, sword-like sparkling silver leaves provide a contrast in form and colour that is not found in any other plant. Greenish yellow flowers in spring, turning to orange fruits in autumn, add to the attraction. They will grow in any soil but perform best if never short of moisture. For a chic modern planting scheme contrast with Ophiopogon planiscapus 'Nigrescens' or Ligularia 'Britt Marie Crawford' in a lightly shaded position. Or grow as a specimen in a container ? black, galvanised, terracotta all work perfectly well.
