Phormium tenax purpureum - New Zealand Flax
Availability: Out of stock
Phormium or New Zealand Flax, has two characteristics which are sought-after by gardeners looking to add a bit of drama to their borders. It offers bold, architectural lines with its erect, sword-shaped leaves and rich foliage colour.
This handsome flax can be used in many ways in the garden and is also suitable for a large container - try growing it in a very large, glazed red container if it's a really bold statement you're after.
The dramatic form of Phormium also makes it intriguing to contrast with low growing flowering plants or with fine foliage plants such as bronze-yellow tussock grasses.
Ground cover plants, or those with berries in winter, make attractive, weed suppressing groundcovers with which to surround a flax such as this.
Supplied at around 90-100cms tall in approx 5 litre containers.
