New Zealand Flax
This upright moderately sized Flax sprouts sword-shaped blades the color of milk chocolate and bears the name of the late, acclaimed plantsman and nursery owner who brought it back from New Zealand. Heightened by delicate pink and cream margins, a channeled midrib and smoky olive green undersides, the scrumptious foliage is somewhat lax toward the tips, which either gracefully fall outward or arch downward.
A tranquil medley of dark yet muted hues and bold texture, ‘Ed Carmen’ combines well with Cistus ‘Decumbens’ and Correa ‘Dusky Bells’.
Size: 2' 0" – 3' 0" high x 2' 0" – 3' 0" wide.
Hardy to zone 8.
