New Zealand Flax

Phormium Bronze

  • New Zealand Flax provides a wonderful accent in any garden with it's bold architectural texture and brilliantly colored foliage. Great for contemporary and modern landscape styles. Easy to maintain, however, some often make the mistake of cutting leaves down to preferred height rather than removing them from the clump at the bottom.  More often than not, colorful cultivars will revert back to their standard green or bronze state after several years of growth.  This can usually be prevented by removing clumps of reverted growth at the base, and occasionally removing old foliage to allow for the new original colors to come through.
