Phormium-New Zealand Flax

Propagating Phormium or New Zealand Flax is similar to Liriope whose rhizomes spread out from the parent plant so transplant in the spring and trim back to 6". Unlike Liriope New Zealand Flax is hardy only in Zones 8 and up and does not bloom, except in old plants, but different varieties have different variegated leaves, ranging from green and red, to pink, to yellow, orange, silver, will reach a height up to 30", remain evergreen, and are deer resistant. Once established plants tend to take dryness but not drought conditions.
