Renga Renga Lily

The low maintenance Renga Renga Lily, also known as the New Zealand Rock Lily (Arthropodium cirratum), is a great replacement for the invasive agapanthus and an alternative to bromeliads.

Renga Renga lilies are clump forming perennials about 75 cm tall with soft grey green arching strappy leaves. They cope well with dry coastal areas but do best in dappled shade and when mass planted they are an impressive sight in spring and summer when they send up tall spikes that produce clouds of white flowers that are followed by fruits and seeds that are attractive to birds.

Renga Renga can be prone to snail damage so pull off the scruffy old foliage in at the base of the plants in Autumn, dig up and divide if necessary, then maybe some food to encourage the flowers in Spring.
