A native perrenial, the Rega Renga is a favoured native landscape plant for covering ground under trees. Tolerating full sun to full shade it works superbly to add foliage and flowers in areas most shrubs won't thrive. White star-shaped flowers arrive in early summer that stand out over lush green leaves. Can be frosted back in cold areas. Will grow to 1m by 1m.
