A very distinctive and colour evergreen perennial, the Libertia ‘Taupo Sunset’, also know as the New Zealand Iris, is an eye-catching grass with long, leathery leaves carrying shades of red, oranges and purples throughout the seasons, changing to a deep rust red in the Winter months. Loose panicles of small, star-shaped, pure white flowers appear between and above the foliage, contrasting nicely with the darker colours to create a compact but striking visual.

Plant in moist, moderately fertile, humus-rich, well-drained soil and keep in full or partial sun. Drought tolerant once established but will require a sheltered position and Winter frost protection in regions with harsher weather. Colder weather may cause dieback but fresh growth will be seen the following Spring.
