Phormium flowers

This year my ‘Sea Jade’ phormium surprised me by sending up a few towering stalks of flowers for me to enjoy.  Phormiums (aka: Flax) don’t always bloom around here, but once in awhile they’ll reward our patience by showing us what they’re really capable of!

Phormiums are one of my favorite go-to plants when designing, as they provide fabulous bold, upright structure in the garden, coming in an abundance of foliage colors from which to choose.  But now I can add their gorgeous blooms, loved by hummingbirds, to my long list of reasons why I love them.

See for yourself!
