Phormium ‘Yellow Wave’
Phormium ‘Yellow Wave’ has drooping, variegated leaves up to 40 in (1 m) long, which gives the plant an arching habit. The leaves have a central cream band, with a number of green stripes. Yellow and orange flowers on 6 ft (1.8 m) spikes, summer. Fairly hardy in the UK.
This fine and popular phormium cultivar was raised in 1967 by Mr F M Jury of Waitara, North Island, New Zealand, who crossed a red-striped form of Phormium tenax with Phormium cookianum.
