New Zealand satin flower, tukauki, mikoikoi
Libertia grandiflora is a slightly tender evergreen perennial plant that forms a clump of erect linear green leaves.
Tall stems of clear white 3 petalled flowers are produced in spring and summer, followed by conspicuous seed capsules in autumn. This makes an excellent coastal plant but requires a deep mulch if grown in colder inland spot.
Drought tolerant and long-lived once established, it makes a cool vertical accent for gravel gardens.

Care & Size Guidance
Libertia grandiflora is not very fussy when it comes to planting: a well drained soil and full sun to part shade position will make it happy. Once established, the plant can cope really well with drier conditions.
Plant in mid-spring in moist soil in a sheltered position. Ultimately, the plant should be used as a textural addition to a border, as it’s leaves are the main focus.
Divide the plants in Spring by digging up the whole plant, and pulling the roots apart into sections to be replanted straight away.
