DESCRIPTION: New Zealand flax featuring deep-purple-red upright foliage. Red flower spikes appear spring-summer.
USES: Plant as a striking feature in coastal gardens. Suited to large containers.
PLANTING: Plant in part shade-full sun in free draining soil. If planting in an exposed location, avoid the hot afternoon sun. Apply mulch and water regularly during the first 12 weeks until the plant is established. Provide additional water during extended dry periods. We recommend planting in well drained soil as flax can be prone to stem rot in boggy or clay soil.
