    Just wanted to get some opinions on what to put in the place of several of these New Zealand Flax? The customer likes the color and texture of them. But they are in an area that gets heavy winds. And then this year with the heavy rain & snow (for Washington State anyway) They got hammered this year. Thanks in advance. :waving:

    the grasses are lower in stature and not as heavily bladed as the flax
    millet has less leaves yet, but is alittle top heavy when they bloom.

    I was reading that the Japanese Blood Grass is considered invasive in many countries?
