A handsome plant for sun or partial shade, with blue-green grass-like leaves and fragrant yellow flowers in late spring. These gorgeous star-shaped blooms are carried in long, dense, unbranched spikes up to 20cm (8in) long. Found growing wild in the eastern Mediterranean, it enjoys well-drained, sandy soil. In cold areas, protect with a dry mulch in autumn. Slugs and snails are partial to its shoots so take suitable measures against them.
