One of the recent compact and highly coloured cultivars of NZ
Flax. It is perhaps more upright than many, reaching 1.5m or so, yet retains a graceful, arching habit. Leaves are coloured centrally in grey-green, irregularly margined with clear butter yellow with a picotee edging of red. In good light, occasional streaks of pinky-red appear brushed through the entire leaf. Evergreen
This is perhaps easier to accommodate in the mixed border where its bright multicolour appearance can be used to tone and contrast.
