Phormium 'Pink Sripe' (Pink New Zealand Flax) – This fantastically colorful New Zealand Flax cultivar grows slowly to 2 to 3 feet tall in a open rosette with lax arching 3 foot long by 1 1/2 inch wide leaves that have a broad midstripe of bubblegum pink surrounded by olive-green to bronze margins. Plant in full sun to light shade. Can tolerate fairly dry conditions (coastal) but looks best with occasional to regular irrigation. This sensational plant was discovered in 2001 by our field supervisor Arturo Garcia in the nursery's Phormium propagation stock corral as a sport taken off of Phormium 'Pink Stripe', from which it differs greatly. Its variegation has remained stable with no reverting green leaves produced since it was discovered.
