Comments: This clump-forming perennial produces stalks of striking flowers and sword-shaped foliage. Various cultivars can be long-lived in the garden. Watsonias tolerate relatively dry soils and no special care. Plants can be evergreen in relatively mild climates. Cut back old foliage in late winter. Propagation is normally by division of well established clumps.
