New Zealand Flax cultivar that grows to only 18 inches tall with slightly arching 2- 3 feet  long pinkish leaves that have an orange midrib and lime green bands near the leaf 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. A very interesting color. This cultivar is thought to be a sport of Phormium ‘Yellow Wave’.
