Phormium tenax purpureum - New Zealand Flax
Product ref: S10853
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 80-100cms tall in 2-3 litre containers.
