Phormium 'Evening Glow' - A newer flax cultivar from Margaret Jones that 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. Possibly root hardy below these temperatures but with severe foliage damage unless protected. We originally received this selection from Margaret Jones in 1991 but unfortunately lost the original plants before bringing them into production - we are really happy to have this beautiful cultivar back! Somewhat similar to the color of 'Maori Maiden' but more upright.  The information about Phormium 'Evening Glow' displayed on this page is based on research conducted in our nursery library and from online sources we consider reliable. We will also relate those observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery gardens and in other gardens that we have visited, as well how the crops have performed in containers in our nursery field. We will also incorporate comments we receive from others and welcome hearing from anyone who has additional information, particularly when they share cultural information that would aid others in growing it.
