spathacea full viewSpathacea is a lovely Californian for a dryish spot,   possibly a little shade.    I used to have trouble establishing this plant so maybe it is not for beginners.  I don’t think it would be good for humidity.

Spathacea has the most wonderfully fragrant foliage with a citrus smell.   It is a hardy evergreen,   usually fairly low,  but if it was especially happy might reach a metre.

There are some colour variations,  yellow etc but I have never got them going in my garden.  After a year or so from seed they die off,  no doubt to do with water.
