Botanic Name: Phormium tenax ‘Rainbow Maiden’

Clumping/Strappy – Feature Plant

My upright arching leaves are a bright salmon pink with bronze margins which fade slowly to a yellow pink. Hardy and low maintenance I am a great way to add structure and year round colour to the garden. Mass planted I create dramatic visual impact. My summer blooms, born on upright stems, are a deep shade of red and attract nectar feeding birds to the garden. Adaptable I will perform well in pots and other containers to brighten patios, balconies and courtyards. My leaves can be cut to be enjoyed indoors either alone or in a mixed floral arrangement.
