PLANTS OF NEW ZEALAND FLAX ’SPECIAL RED’ - PHORMIUM TENAX ’SPECIAL RED
Ideal for gardens, this New Zealand Flax has narrow, deep burgundy-red leaves to create colour and structure. Compact shape. Perfect for containers on a terrace. Hardy. Low maintenance.
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.
