Specialty Crops:  Phormium (New Zealand Flax)
Since the introduction of many of the colorful new hybrids of New Zealand Flax to horticulture in the United States in the 1980's, San Marcos Growers has been a principal source for these beautiful and useful plants. From our many years experience growing Phormium as a crop and using them in our garden we are able to describe the forms and colors they achieve and list their cultural needs and problems. Our Phormium Pages contain this information, details the history of cultivation and has many garden images. In addition the cultivars we are currently growing are listed below with links to more detailed descriptions and images
