How to grow Renga Renga Lily (Arthropodium cirratum)
Commonly known as the Renga Renga Lily, this herbaceous perennial is grown for its foliage and flowers. It grows as a clump and bears soft and lush, dark green foliage held with a gentle arch. Masses of starry, white flowers are borne on wispy stems through spring and summer and are followed by fruits and seeds that attract birds. This plant is found naturally throughout NZ in coastal areas where it typically grows to as a tidy clump to about 75 cm tall and the same wide. It grows best when planted in full sun or partial shade on a well-drained, frost free site, though will tolerate dry and exposed conditions. The Renga Renga Lily is commonly mass planted as a groundcover, used in cottage or “white” gardens, included in borders, or planted around outdoor living areas.
