Greet the dawn every day of the year with Phormium 'Rainbow Sunrise'. This New Zealand flax variety has strap-shaped leaves striped in shades of pink and brown, creating an exciting colour feature in your border or large container.

This hardy clump-forming plant is easy to grow, drought-resistant and will thrive in full sun and moist well-drained soil. It will grow to 80cm x 80cm in height and spread in around 10 years. Its yellow flower spikes should be removed in autumn to prevent winter rocking.

It is an ideal plant for sculptural interest and colour throughout the year.
