Also known as New Zealand Flax, Phormium ‘Rainbow Queen’ (AKA ‘Maori Queen’) is a robust, fully hardy evergreen which forms a dense clump of sword-like leaves – a really great plant for adding a bit of a statement to your garden. Stunning in a border and stylish in a container, this recently introduced phormium plant has particularly striking, bronze-green leaves edged with ruby red stripes, and is a compact form – meaning that it won’t overshadow everything in your garden plus you can grow it in a pot! Phormiums prefer a hot dry site (although will tolerate partial shade) and make a great candidate for a Mediterranean garden or a gravel garden where their upright leaves make a great foil for many other coloured plants. Easy to grow, phormium ‘Rainbow Queen’ needs virtually no maintenance – it may even reward you with spikes of yellow flowers in late summer. Ultimately growing to around 1.5m, we supply well-established plant in a 3L pot ready for immediate planting.
