Lake Te Anu, NZ. This South Island collection from some elevation -- the parents in standing water for part of the year -- has proven to be a very good garden specimen in the only two years we have had it in the ground. Upright, to 6-7', with rather wide leaves of olive-green, ever-so-slightly burgundy tinted. We expect these to be a bit hardier to frost than some, to 15 °F, mid-USDA Zone 8, at least. Otherwise, bright light, summer water to establish, and mulch for winter protection in colder climates.
