Guardsman New Zealand Flax

$79.95$199.95

We’re usually hesitant to use the word “best” in a description but we really feel like Guardsman is the very best of the many New Zealand Flax cultivars. The colors alone are worth growing it for. Deep purple, almost black and red stripes!

Guardsman New Zealand Flax

We’re usually hesitant to use the word “best” in a description but we really feel like Guardsman is the very best of the many New Zealand Flax cultivars. Worth growing it for the colors alone with its deep purple, almost black highlighted by red stripes! Looks like it should be the official Phormium of the Portland Trail Blazers. How many NBA teams have their own New Zealand Flax mascot, a flax-cot if you will! Anyways, this beauty grows to a monstrous 8-10′ but is very slow to offset, which is why this cultivar has been such a prized rarity for so long. Dame Time meets the Phormium prime and we couldn’t be happier!
