Quantity
  • Position: full sun

  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: July

    Spikes of tubular, yellow-green flowers emerge in summer above clumps of sword-shaped, creamy-yellow and green striped leaves, with a thin red edge. This highly-decorative mountain flax makes a great all-year feature plant for a sheltered, sunny site. In frost-prone areas, over-winter container-grown specimens in a frost-free greenhouse or conservatory.

  • Garden care: Requires minimal pruning. In late spring remove any dead or damaged leaves and apply a balanced fertiliser and a mulch of well-rotted organic matter to stimulate vigorous new growth.
