Phormium Apricot Queen

New Zealand Flax Apricot Queen

A compact form of New Zealand flax with wonderful colouring, Phormium Apricot Queen is an evergreen perennial forming a medium-sized clump of long, arching leaves, a striking structural plant for even small gardens. The long, sword-shaped leaves are creamy yellow tinted with apricot and striped longitudinally in bronze and deep-green. In hot summers the plant will flower in July, sending up a tall spike of red, tubular flowers, followed by striking seed-heads which persist through winter. New Zealand flax Apricot Queen copes with sea air, and is ideal for a gravel or Mediterranean planting or for giving a subtropical feel to the garden. Needs winter protection in colder parts of the country.
