Why We Love It

Let the pointed, spear-shaped leaves of Astelia ‘Silver Shadow’ add dramatic foliage to beds and borders.

With their silvery coating, they’ll put on a show wherever you plant them.

In mid to late spring, keep an eye out for the yellow-green flowers, which give way to orange berries in the summer months.

Surround your Astelia with grasses or other silvery foliage for a standout display and keep in mind that it may need protecting over the winter in particularly exposed areas.

Planting Calendar

Plant in March, April, May.

Flowers in April, May.

Planting and Care

Into the Ground

  1. Water the plant thoroughly before planting.
  2. Make a hole that's twice the width of the rootball but the same depth.
  3. Add some organic matter to the soil.
  4. Remove the temporary container and plant at the same height as it was growing in the pot, just burying the roots.
  5. Firm the soil around the plant using your hands.
  6. Water well and get well-watered until established.

Into a Pot

  1. Find a pot that's twice the size of the rootball.
  2. Ensure it has plenty of drainage holes, and put crocks in the bottom, to ensure no compost get washed away.
  3. Fill with good quality compost.
  4. Make a hole slightly bigger than the rootball.
  5. Place the plant into the hole at soil level.
  6. Firm in and water well.
