Flax Lily 'Jester'
Phormium ‘Jester,’ an exquisite New Zealand flax cultivar, boasts stunning multicoloured foliage with vibrant greens, soft pinks, and creamy tones. This compact plant, reaching up to 1.5 metres in height and width, elevates gardens and containers with its captivating colours and architectural form.
Perfect for landscapes, its striking appearance and low maintenance needs make it a sought-after choice among gardening enthusiasts. However, the bold colours need to be used with care, and can vary slightly according to growing position and conditions, so choose companions carefully.
Care & Size Guidance
Phormium ‘Jester’ flourishes in well-drained soil and thrives in full sun to partial shade, requiring minimal care once established. This compact cultivar typically reaches 1-1.5 metres in both height and width, making it ideal for smaller spaces or as an eye-catching accent.
Regular watering during its initial growth phase helps establish a healthy root system, after which it becomes moderately drought-tolerant. Pruning dead or damaged leaves can maintain its tidy appearance, while occasional feeding with a balanced fertilizer supports its vibrant foliage.
