Elegia capensis – enjoy a bit of drama in the garden? This restio from South Africa will exhibit lightning speed growth and architectural qualities with the bamboo style stems reaching 2 metres high accompanied by needle-like leaves. The elegant plant forms a thick forest of stems which will need to be kept in check if space is limited. Golden brown flower heads are produced in the spring followed by dark brown seed heads. Enhances watery areas such as near swimming pools, streams or ponds and loves watery locations with a sunny, Mediterranean climate. Although top growth may be cut back in temperatures as low as minus 8 degrees the plant should regrow from the base as long as the plant is well mulched.
