Wicked New Zealander with defensively formidable stiletto yellowish leaves in a low dense mound. This is not only deer resistant but wild boar, komodo dragon and grizzly bear resistant as well. This well-armored Kiwi has dioecious white flowers in a showy yellow plume.  Locally, this has perhaps been best grown at Linda Cochran's famed garden on Bainbridge Island where it has simply become more architecturally arresting over the last 10 years.  Fare to say Linda is ruthless when it comes to underachievers and the fact that this has remained very high on her list of favorites for the last decade is ample endorsement.  Reasonable drainage and full to half sun..
