This is a great architectural plant with reddish-brown leaves and yellow/orange flowers in midsummer. Plants grow into evergreen clumps up to 1.5m high and similar across. They are good for all but the coldest gardens in the UK, and also grow well in larger containers. These are a good alternative to Phormium tenax, as they have a more compact shape and softer drooping leaves.
New Zealand Mountain Flax grows best in full sun in well drained soil. They can need protecting in very cold gardens and during periods of prolonged snowfall.
Pack of 20 seeds. Sow anytime, typically spring to autumn. Germination is erratic and may be enhanced with chilling. Sowing instructions and a colour photo are printed on the packet.
