Flax lily


These evergreen, clump-forming perennials are delightful plants for a shaded place in a warm-temperate garden. The striping on the strap-like leaves that shoot up from underground rhizomes ranges from lemon yellow to lime green alternating with dark green. Small, starry, purple-blue flower clusters appear in spring followed by glistening turquoise blue berries.
