New Zealand Flax. (Thank you David)

New Zealand Flax. (Thank you David) (Phormium tenax)

Comments on this photo


New Zealand Flax, rather than Australian, but close enough, Claire. Phormium tenax is the Latin name. Phormium atropurpureum is given to the dark-coloured varieties, of which there are now lots. Love this in that blue pot! ;-))
