Arthropodium cirratum 'Te Puna' is a clumping perennial herbaceous plant with broad strappy leaves and white lily flowers in spring and summer. It is a very useful plant as it grows and flowers in shade and under trees, and can also tolerate dry conditions. It is good for edging, borders and along retaining walls, as well as mass plantings. Protect from frost. It is rarely troubled by pests or diseases, making it an easy care garden addition. Snails like the new growth, so scatter a few snail pellets from time to time. Mulch well to keep weeds at bay. 'Te Puna' is a dwarf variety of Arthropodium, and is native to New Zealand. The rhizomes are edible when cooked.
