Plant of the week. Astelia Chathamica'Silver Spear'

Astelia 'Silver Spear' is a hardy, clump-forming perennial with elegant silvery spear-shaped leaves. In very cold winters in exposed areas plants may suffer frost damage and may benefit from protection. This plant can make a dramatic feature in the garden especially when planted close to purple-foliage plants such as Heuchera' Chocolate Ruffles . It makes an unusual alternative to Phormium tenax (New Zealand common flax).
