Phormium tenax Purpureum Group/New Zealand Flax is an evergreen perennial with strap-shaped, leathery, bronze leaves up to 2m + in height. The first time you see it flower it knocks your socks off with its extraordinary spear-like, flowering spikes bearing reddish flowers to 3m in height which frankly look as though they've been stuck on! A truly impressive, structural plant which deserves a position in the back of the border where it will combine well with other exotics, shrubs or roses.
