This stunning, evergreen, native flax was selected for its bold, variegated burgundy red foliage, which intensifies depending on the season. It maintains a tidy habit which thrives in almost all New Zealand soil and climatic conditions. It is compatible when planted alongside grasses, Astelias and Hebes, requiring very little maintenance. It is also outstanding planted in mass with river rocks and stones. This plant is approximately eighteen months when it reaches the garden centre and it will double in size over the next two years, eventually growing to 1.5 metre by 1.5 metre.
