|Wonderfully showy perennial. Handsome, lance-shaped foliage. Ideal for sunny gardens, near ponds or pools. Works well temporarily in containers. Prized for its profusion of stunning lily-like flowers in summer. Attractive perennial, originating from a rhizome, that is semi-evergreen to evergreen in tropical areas. Nice plant for the cutting border or near ponds and pools. Can withstand boggy soil. Best if not grown in a container long term, especially where winters are cold. In these areas, dig rhizome and store over winter, replanting in spring.
