PLANTS OF NEW ZEALAND FLAX ’AMAZING RED’ - PHORMIUM TENAX
Ideal for small gardens, this New Zealand Flax has narrow, dark reddish-brown leaves to create a breathtaking colour spot!. In summer the flowers will attract nectar-seeking birds. Perfect for containers on a terrace.
Evergreen perennial with dark reddish-brown strap-shaped leaves up to 40-70cm. Red flowers in large panicles.
Clean the plant in spring by removing dead or damaged leaves.
Dig a hole at least two or three times as wide and deep as the root ball. Take out the plant from the container and loosen roots to allow them to spread out in all direction. Cut possible broken roots. Mix the soil extracted with a substrate and fill part of the hole with the mixture obtained. Place the plant in the hole and cover with the remaining mixture. Compact the soil around the plant and water thoroughly.
