Dwarf Mountain Flax Wharariki (Native)

Dwarf Mountain Flax	Wharariki (Native)

Mountain flax inhabits New Zealand's most precarious coastal cliffs, making it ideal for exposed, windy or dry, gardens. Long spikes of spring to summer flowers attract bees and native birds.



When to sow

Spring & autumn


  • Mass planting
  • Accent plant
  • Suitable for exposed areas


Fill a seed tray with Yates Black Magic® Seed Raising Mix. Press mix firmly into tray; water and allow to drain. Sow seed and cover lightly with seed raising mix. Place tray in a warm, shady, sheltered place and mist with water, as required, to keep moist (not wet).


Once seedlings are 3-5cm high, transplant into small individual pots. Grow on until a root ball establishes and transplant into the garden or containers.


Cold treatment and growing in a greenhouse will enhance germination. Apply Yates Blitzem® to protect young seedlings from slugs and snails.
