A New Zealand's native which has settled down well in the UK. This distant iris relative has sprays of pure white, almost orchid-like, saucer-shaped flowers with yellow stamens atop clumps of non-invasive dark green stems. Its airy habit makes it perfect for growing in a prairie-style display or a gravel garden, particularly among other airy plants. Alternatively plant as a specimen plant in a border.
Flowers from May to July.
Graham Stuart Thomas states that it is "Desirable and elegant."
Common name(s): New Zealand satin flower
Synonym: Libertia grandiflora
