Astelia ‘Westland’ is a red foliaged selection of the Mountain Astelia, an evergreen perennial that comes from the tussock grasslands of the central North Island of New Zealand. It’s easycare, compact habit and colour make it compatible with all modern home decor and garden landscapes. This plant grows to 2-4 feet tall with 2 to 3 inch wide gradually tapering and arching leaves that are a silver-gray that is flushed with red bronze colors and turns purple-red in winter. Plant in part sun to light shade in a well-drained soil. Although this plant can take periods without water and is marketed as a drought tolerant plant in New Zealand, it looks better if given occasional to regular irrigation in our dry summers in California. It’s a fabulous foliage plant ideal for mass or container planting alongside Euphorbia Kea and Tui, Cabbage Trees, Scleranthus or other foliage of the nature.
