Haloragis erecta Wellington Bronze
Description
Haloragis erecta 'Wellington Bronze' is an unusual sub-shrubby plant species that is endemic to New Zealand, up to an altitude of 500m. The leaves are opposite and coarsely toothed. Stems are square and reddish in colour. In this form, the leaves are a bronzed purple brown in colour and shade varies somewhat, depending on soil type and position.Inconspicuous in bloom, but indispensable for foliar effect, this plant forms a dense mound of small, linear, bronze leaves on wine-coloured stems - useful wherever contrast of form and foliage is valued. In a mixed border, combine ‘Wellington Bronze' with Lavanders, Euphorbia characias varieties and grasses such as Stipa arundinacea for an engaging array of texture and colour. This plant may be tender in our colder areas, but will self sow so survival is often assured.
