Apricot-Tinged Greenery for the Golden State
Dramatic, dimensional foliage for your California garden is just a click away. With our New Zealand Flax, you get apricot-hued growth contrasting against classic greens and pops of yellow color. Multifaceted, textural tones are synonymous with the New Zealand Flax, and you get easy growth, too.
Especially because the Flax is drought tolerant. Simply plant the New Zealand in full sun and well-drained soil, and watch it flourish in your Golden State landscape. Because this variety is tailored for California growth and dry conditions, it thrives from containers to accents in your front yard or borders along your home.
But the best part is the New Zealand is a proven performer…because it’s been planted, monitored and shipped with best results in mind, specifically for the Golden State. Our expert horticulturists have hand-selected this easygoing evergreen for your desert garden, and now, you reap the rewards of our hard work.
Whether you’re cutting the New Zealand’s foliage for flower arrangements or planting next to your driveway like Hosta plants, you get amazing results. Get your own New Zealand Flax today!

Planting & Care
When you’re ready to plant your Flax, dig a hole that’s about one and a half to two times the size of your plant’s root ball, place the plant in the hole, back fill the soil and water to settle the roots.
2. Watering: Once established, your New Zealand Flax is drought tolerant and thrives in cooler coastal regions, but it’s important to have a regular watering schedule. Water about once weekly or more often in extreme heat and check the surrounding soil…if the surrounding soil is dry 2 or 3 inches down, water your plant.
3. Pruning: Remove any damaged foliage from your New Zealand Flax as needed for a tidy appearance.
