I am Phormium Black Rage. My family originated from New Zealand

Botanic Name: Phormium tenax ‘Black Rage’

Clumping/Strappy – Ideal for mass planting

I am a dramatic clump forming plant that produces striking dark burgundy almost black, strappy upright foliage the undersides of which are tinged with silver.

I produce bird attracting red and chartreuse flowers borne on long stems from spring into summer.

I look great mass planted and do well in containers or as part of a feature planting.

My dark shade provides excellent contrast to brighter coloured plants in the garden.
