Description How to Grow Delivery

A vigorous variety with particularly good silver colouring. Astelia ‘Silver Shadow’ is a choice perennial for evergreen structure, colour and texture.

It forms clumps of large, arching, sword-like leaves in a shimmering silver. It is great for injecting dramatic, spikey accents amongst low mounding plants and its silver colouring contrasts beautifully with purple/red tones. In spring, female plants produce yellowish-green flowers on long stalks followed by orange berries. Use it as an accent plant in the border or plant it into a container as an architectural focal point. It works equally well in partial shade with ferns, or in a sunny Mediterranean scheme with drought tolerant plants. This half hardy perennial will grow outdoors all year in milder parts of the UK but will require protection in colder parts of the country and severe winters. It makes a superb choice for all-year-round interest in mild city and courtyard gardens or coastal locations. Thrives in sun or part shade. Height and spread: 1m (39in).
