Wachendorfia thyrsiflora
Wachendorfia thyrsiflora Wachendorfia thyrsiflora

This tropicalesque plant makes a dramatic garden statement. Large flower spikes – up to 10 at a time - rise to 6’ tall and are covered with yellow 3/4" star-shaped flowers. The large sword-shaped leaves are attractively pleated. Found in marshes and along streams in South Africa, this plant is easy to grow in average garden soil or at the edge of a pond. Appreciates some compost though! Evergreen and blooms Spring through Summer. The rhizomatous roots can be used to make a reddish dye. To 2-3’ wide.
