How to Use Amazing Red New Zealand Flax in the Landscape

With a strongly erect, vase-shape form and blade-like leaves, Amazing Red New Zealand Flax draws the eye. Maximize this architectural perennial with a high-profile spot.

Keep several in starkly streamlined containers perfectly positioned equidistant along your terrace for a high-end look. Add them in a sinuous ribbon at the foreground of a shrub border.

Plant a showy row of them as a foundation planting. These firewise plants help protect your defensible space.

Amazing Red New Zealand Flax looks incredible when repeated to create a textural stand. Create a solid fill by planting them 18 inches apart, measuring from the center of one to the center of the next.

Add extra rows with a zigzagging, checkerboard planting pattern to create a gorgeous mass planting. Mulch newly installed mass plantings and keep them weeded until they grow together.

Keep cleanup tasks at a minimum with wise planting practices. Allow three feet of room between the center of New Zealand Flax and the sidewalk to avoid trip hazards.

Low maintenance gardens are blissfully easy for busy people to enjoy year-round. Rely on this "workhorse" for impact, style and color...without very much annual care.

This durable plant is listed on several state Firewise lists. Include it in your defensible zone to protect your property.

#ProPlantTips for Care

This pretty plant can take full sunshine without its dark, reddish-brown leaves getting drab. It can do well in a bit of shade...but needs at least four hours of direct sunlight a day.

Don't plant too deeply, as Phorbium requires well-drained soils and their roots can't handle wet soil. Use a container if you struggle with poor drainage, or create a raised planting bed.

During the first season in the ground, give it more water as the roots are getting established; then reduce the watering levels to low. Water containerized plants regularly and support in-ground plants with consistent water during extended drought.

In late winter or early spring after flowering, cut out damaged or discolored leaves out and away from the base of the clump. Don't shorten the leaves with straight cuts near the end of the leave. Rather, trim at a diagonal...reaching all the way down at the bottom.

Wear gloves for this task! Let the small stump dry for a week, then remove it completely.
