Towering spikes of white, bell-shaped flowers in July and August above clumps of stiff, dark green, lance-shaped leaves. Adam's needle makes an excellent focal point for a sunny, well-drained Mediterranean-style garden. A gravel mulch accentuates the architectural foliage and helps to protect the crown of the plant from frost-damage. The leaves have sharp tips and serrated edges, so it's best not planted where you are going to brush past it.
- Garden care: During the growing season water well, applying a balanced liquid fertiliser each month. Remove the faded flower-spikes at the end of the season.
