Phormium tenax cv Variegatum - New Zealand Flax

This is a listing for a pack of 20 seeds.

Phormium tenax called flax in New Zealand English; harakeke in Māori; New Zealand flax outside New Zealand; and New Zealand hemp in historical nautical contexts is an evergreen perennial plant native to New Zealand and Norfolk Island that is an important fibre plant and a popular ornamental plant. The plant grows as a clump of long, straplike leaves, up to two metres long, from which arises a much taller flowering shoot, with dramatic yellow or red flowers. It is a striking architectural plant and is often found in mixed borders and in rock gardens. This cultivar has an RHS Award of Merit, its leaves are variegated deep green and yellow.

It prefers a soil with good drainage and out of the shade. It is particularly good in coastal settings as it is very tolerant of salt laden air. It is hardy in Zones 6 - 10, capable of taking several degrees of frost for extended periods provided the ground is not completely waterlogged. Fast growing it will quickly establish itself.
