Libertia

Libertia peregrinans

Grown more for its foliage than its flowers, Libertia has bold, swordlike leaves similar to iris foliage. The narrow olive green leaves have a pronounced orange to brown-orange stripe down the center. The six-petal flowers are white and bloom in late spring and early summer. Highlight Libertia's spiky, modern look by pairing it with frothy mounding perennials, such as lady's mantle and catmint. You'll love how its angular shape lends rhythm to a mixed border.

Plant Libertia in full sun or part shade and well-drained soil. It grows from rhizomes, again like iris, and spreads slowly to form a colony.

Catmint

Helenium
Helenium's bright orange blossoms draw attention to libertia's green and orange variegation.
Lady's mantle
Airy flower clusters float above the pretty green foliage of lady's mantle. Its graceful appearance softens libertia's strong outline.
