Phormium New Hybrids Ornamental Grass Seeds (New Zealand Flax) 10+Seeds
Phormium Tenax (New Zealand Flax New Hybrids) - Phormium, a native New Zealander, is pretty new on the scene here in the U.S. It has long been grown for its strong, upright and fast growth habit and is sometimes called an ornamental grass on steroids which makes a great accent plant. Many gardeners know New Zealand Flax as a large and often colorful spiky plant that makes an arresting focal point in the garden or in containers.
Phormium Tenax has sword-like leaves that shoot up from the base of the plant and new hybrids are now available in shades of yellow, pink, red and bronze. Hummingbirds love to feed on these nectar-rich blossoms. Phormiums are salt tolerant making them ideal for planting in coastal areas.
