Phormium tenax, swamp flax

Out of stock

Phormium tenax, swamp flax or harakeke is a handsome and dramatic plant with sword-like leaves. Please don’t plant it in your garden unless you have a wetland there, because it grows very large. Harakeke makes great shelter for stock, especially in combination with cabbage trees. In Hawke’s Bay it is only naturally found in wetlands.
