There are two main Flax species including P. tenax (Harakeke) and P. cookianum (Wharariki) and within each species there are many different cultivars, each growing to different dimensions. Larger growing varieties (2-3m tall) will require a very large pot (at least 1m wide), while dwarf varieties (35-75 cm tall) will only need a small pot (30-50cm wide).
To keep the plant looking at its best, remove any of the older or damaged leaves.
