Description

Like a flowering rush on the fringes of a Scottish pool, Libertia is perfect in a garden in spring, either in full sun, or as I’ve found it at home, happy in dappled shade.

Care Tips

Being evergreen you will need to remove old foliage to reveal attractive new growth. Divide mature specimens in spring or autumn.
