Red/purple foliaged seedling form of New Zealand Flax P. tenax (Harakeke), generally smaller in stature than the green form. Plant next to shrubs with lighter colouring for best effect. Evergreen. Hardy upright leaves  to 2.5m tall and round. Grows in almost any situation. Frost tolerant. Very tough and hardy. Nectar attracts the birds. Good for revegetation but plant above flood level as can hold water back.
