Phormium Tenax Rubra
Phormium Tenax Purpureum
The purple one! Found in an impressively wide range of purple shades, it grows not quite as tall as its close relative Phormium Tenax, but still produces striking tall red flower spikes in the summer. For a dramatic or bold statement try planting in a large container and make a garden focal point!
