Phormium - New Zealand Flax

Phormium is also known as New Zealand Flax, because the Maoris actually used for making a type of linen clothing as well as ropes and baskets because of its strength. Gardeners know it as a large to dwarf shrub ( depending on variety or hybrid ) and often very colorful in an array of colors on beautiful sword shaped foliage, making a bold statement to any garden or as a container plant. New hybrids are being developed in arrays of color combinations of yellows, pinks, bronze, reds, black and more. Full sun to part shade, hardy to zone 7b taking temps as low as 20 F. Flowering bracts occur when plant begins to mature producing many seeds.
