Pot Size

Mountain flax, Wharariki endemic to New Zealand, Phormium cookianum is a very useful plant for any native planting. Despite its common name, the New Zealand Mountain flax, Phormium cookianum is found throughout New Zealand on coastal slopes to above treeline, among scrub or grasses. Phormium cookianum is smaller than the New Zealand flax Phormium tenax and has leaves with more droop whereas Phormium tenax leaves are more stiff and erect. The seed capsules of the Phormium cookianum are drooping and twisted and not erect and angled as in P.tenax. The flowers are a source of nectar for the native birds, especially the tui and the bellbird. Most of the flax cultivars are derived from Phormium cookianum.

This grade is superb when looking to plant a large area.
