A tall paw with large individual flowers. Strong grower that persists from year to year. Good cut flower and attracts birds that feed from the nectar rich flowers. Strappy dark green leaves.
Best in a sunny spot, feed with a good native fertiliser. Once established, it can be cut back hard to the ground to rejuvenate, as it will regrow from the underground rhizomes.
