A beautiful red cultivar of New Zealand Flax. Phormium Evening Glow produces long, upright leaves that are gently arching. The coloured leaves range from a glorious mix of reds, and pinks, to bronze and purple tones on each leaf. Flowers are rarely produced on this variety, but the leaf colour makes up for that. New Zealand Flax works well in coastal, windy locations. They are perfect for low maintenance gardens, and suitable as container plants.
