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 will benefit from protection. During mid to late spring, long stalks of yellowish-green flowers emerge from female plants, which produce orange berries in summer. This plant can make a dramatic feature in the garden especially when planted close to purple-foliage plants such as Aeonium 'Zwartkop', or Phormium 'All Black'. It makes an unusual alternative to New Zealand flax. Propagate by division in spring.
