Aristea major is a broad, strappy foliaged, evergreen perennial which is slow to establish but worth the wait. The foliage mound which grows to around 1m tall, is unremarkable, but is topped by tall, delphinium-like, bright blue blooms with yellow centres stand upright to around 150cm. The dark seed pods extend the period of interest and last through until winter. Drought tolerant.
