A newer flax cultivar grows to 3-4 ft. tall with slightly arching 1 1/2 wide leaves that are predominantly a reddish pink color with darker reddish purple margins. Plant in full sun to light shade. Can tolerate fairly dry conditions (coastal)  but looks best with occasional to regular irrigation.  Hardy to 15-20 F.    Somewhat similar to the color of ‘Maori Maiden’ but more upright.
