They are lovely, and I used to grow them. I fell in love with them at Coleton Fishacre garden.
However, I found they got huge very quickly, and got way too big for my garden.
I made the decision a long time ago not to have any plants here that I would always be fighting with, so it went - to a friend who has a huge garden, so I can still go and visit it!
Die of cold here, shame really.
Yes, know them well as we have lots in the New Zealand Garden at the Bristo Botanic Garden. They can be invasive but the seeds are harvested at the Garden for the Friends Seed Distribution. I did sow some so somewhere in my crowded cold frame I have their strappy leaves!
Lots of leaves and not many flowers here. Died last winter and weren't replaced
We planted a few Libertia peregrinans many years ago in a dry shady area.
They looked stunning.
Then swamping everything else.
Spreading by roots.
They took over .
So much so we were forced to weed every single one out!
Be very careful where you plant them!
