Description Fine Print
 
Libertia perigrinans is valued for its richly coloured orangey-infused, erect, iris-like foliage that is especially pretty backlit by the sun. The foliage is evergreen, or everorange, and looks great 365 days a year. The small white flowers appear intermittently and are lightly fragrant. The orange colouration in the leaves is more intense when plants are stressed so don't baby them. Give them lean, well-drained soil in sun.
