Haloragis erecta 'Wellington Bronze' (Toatoa) Details

“Wellington Bronze” is a NZ native shrub that features bronze-purple foliage. The colourful leaves are held densely off rigid stems, which also host spikes of green-yellow flowers in summer. It typically grows to 50 cm tall and the same wide, performing best when positioned in full sun or partial shade on a well-drained site. It is a hardy plant and will tolerate wind, dry periods, moderate frost, and a range of soil conditions, barring the extremes of wet and dry. “Wellington Bronze” is most suited to situations where contrast of form and foliage is valued. For these reasons, it is commonly added to mixed and border plantings, planted around outdoor living areas such as pools, mass planted on a bank or as a groundcover, or planted around the base of larger trees.
