'Platt's Black' New Zealand Flax is one of those plants that draws the eye, not because of its size (it's small for a phormium), but its unusual dark color. Its sword-like, chocolatey black leaves are the perfect foil for brighter colored companion plants, and can be a striking centerpiece in a container planter. 'Platt's Black' provides year-round interest and is a low-maintenance garden favorite.
