A Bit More

A favorite here at Boething for its playful spray of rainbow-colored leaves, Phormium ‘Maori Queen’ provides beautiful color and interest in the landscape. Each fibrous leaf is different from the other, striped in variable combinations of pink, red, cream and green. This regal queen stands upright at 4-6’ tall and 2-4’ wide. Cold hardy to 15° F and tolerant of shade, drought, and coastal conditions, plant Phormium in full sun to part shade. From the ancient greek phormos, meaning wicker basket or mat, Phormiums are used by the indigenous Maori of New Zealand for woven baskets and mats, and the fibers are used for rope, fishing nets and clothing. Use Phormium ‘Maori Queen’ as accents, in mixed borders, or in masses.
