An extremely hardy plant and highly adaptible in different soil types, makes this a reliable perennial for garden beds or as a feature plant. Its sword-like leaves and delicate blooms in shades of white, mauve, and yellow not only add aesthetic appeal but also attract beneficial pollinators, enhancing plant and wildlife diversity in the garden.
