HAVE a number of dwarf flaxes and find them wonderful plants for
tubs and gardens. I particularly like the red ones, 'Evening Glow'
and the two newest varieties, 'Jester' (right) and 'Rainbow Red'.
However, one of my variegated yellow flaxes, Phormium 'Duet'
has several green leaves instead of the yellow-edged ones. Should
I remove them?
Sometimes variegated plants can revert back to the plain form and
this can then take over, until you have no cream-edged leaves left.
