Elleme's Garden


Genus: Libertia.

Species: Libertia.

Probably Libertia grandiflora, it definitely isn't L. perigrinans. One of my 'free' or 'self-donated' plants. This plant was a surprise self-seeding from who knows where in in a crack between my front garden paving and cobblestones. In spite or perhaps even because of the unpromising position, it has somehow managed to grow into a big evergreen clump which is so vigorous I have to cut part of it back to avoid tripping up the postman. I like its fresh strappy leaves and its early summer white flowers, so I'm happy to let it stay there and self-seed a little more. I'd divide it if it wasn't wedged so firmly in place that I can't actually dig it up.
