Maori Maiden or Rainbow Maiden - Phormium

Maori Maiden or Rainbow Maiden (Phormium)

The Maori Maiden hails all the way from New Zealand, providing us with an easy to maintain, and colorful landscaping plant. The Maiden version of this perennial has a beautiful salmon-pink color with a slight olive green stripe at its edge. It’s got a lovely arch to it, as well.

Where They Do Well:

The Maori Maiden does well in high wind areas, offering some shelter from it. They put up with a wide range of temperatures, aside from anything below freezing


They need little to regular watering and can manage in a wide range of sunlight options. Trim out any bits that have lost their color, but other than that, leave them be.
