Libertia peregrinans (Orange Libertia) An interesting and colorful rhizomatous perennial with stiffly upright foliage to just under 2 feet tall. The leaves are green in the center and bright orange along the margins. Lightly fragrant, pure white blooms on branched stems (shorter than the leaves) appear in the spring. It takes the sun or light shade, has moderate water needs, and is hardy to about 15 degrees F. It forms colonies by rhizomes (which distinguishes it from the the solitary Libertia ixioides). This plant makes a statement, and is particularly striking when it is backlit. We have grown this plant since 1996. 

This information about Libertia peregrinans displayed is based on research conducted in our horticultural library and from reliable online resources. We also will relate observations made about it as it grows in our nursery gardens and other gardens we have visited, as well how the crops have performed in containers in our nursery field. We will also incorporate comments that we receive from others and we welcome hearing from anyone with additional information, particularly if they can share any cultural information that would aid others in growing it.
