Description: A most dramatic and handsome foliage plant, originating from South Africa, that we have grown in a raised bed at Crûg for many years. Where it thrives in a sunny fairly sheltered position, in a sharply drained soil, only occasionally getting knocked back by severe cold. Forming hollow flexuous stems up to 2 m long, bearing large deeply serrated pinnate silvery grey foliage to 45 cm long, sometimes edged in red when stressed. Some years bearing terminal spikes of tawny-crimson flowers much loved by insects, which pollinate them with gusto. Protect the roots from severe frost.
