Buy Phormium tenax New Zealand flax: Impressive focal point

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: July
  • Flower colour: red
  • Hardiness: frost hardy

    Towering spikes of tubular, red flowers emerge in summer above clumps of bold, sword-shaped, dark green leaves, with blue-green undersides. This New Zealand flax makes a magnificent feature plant for a large, sunny, garden, protected from cold, drying winds. One of the largest varieties, it thrives particularly well in warm, coastal sites.

  • Garden care: Requires minimal pruning. In late spring remove any dead or damaged leaves and apply a balanced fertiliser and a mulch of well-rotted organic matter to stimulate vigorous, new growth.
