Phormium Purpureum Ornamental Grass Seeds (New Zealand Flax) 10+Seeds
Phormium Tenax (New Zealand Flax Purpureum) - Upright wide, purple bronze foliage, provides a stunning focal point for any landscaping project for the garden or pots. Hummingbirds love to feed on orange nectar-rich blossoms. Phormiums are salt tolerant making them ideal for planting in coastal areas.
Native to New Zealand, Phormium tenax grows large tufts of broad, sword-shaped, stiffly ascending leaves. It does best in moderate climates and is a perfect companion for palms, bamboos and tree ferns. It is extremely tolerant of wind and can take coastal exposure as well as light freezes. The Purple New Zealand Flax may take a while to grow from seeds, but it will be worth your efforts.
