Silver Spears. Very nice sculptural plant with inimitable form and color.  This will get 3' tall or larger if supremely happy and the color is best in bright, light shade or at least not in hot afternoon sun.  This is from the Chatham Islands in New Zealand and is hardy here in mild gardens and good against a wall.  Below 25F you might think about tossing a sleeping bag over it.  A great plant for all you folks sheltered gardens or who like to overwinter containers inside. `
