Renga renga or rock lily is a very adaptable coastal plant with white flower through spring.
The Renga renga is one of New Zealand's most versatile and popular landscaping plants.
Growing into a clump of 60cm in height, producing long stems of white flowers from November to January.
The rhizomes are edible when cooked and can be found throughout the year. Rhizomes were once eaten by the Māori after being cooked by hāngi. Colenso believed, for two reasons, that this plant was once cultivated by them: firstly, the plant grows much larger under cultivation than it usually does in the wild; and secondly it was often found near old deserted Māori homes and plantations. However, he lists it as only fourteenth in importance, in his list of eighteen kinds of wild vegetable food used by the Māori.
Best grown in full sun and dry soils.
