Bright orange ornamental grass

Martin O\’Sullivan asked 12 years ago

I am trying to figure out the name of a plant I have seen recently. It is a bright orange ornamental grass. I think it may be Phormium ‘Jester’ but not quite sure. Could this be right? I know there are many other species and cultivars. It seems to be a very popular plant.

Phormium ‘Jester’ is more pink-red than orange but there are lots of yellow phormiums. It is not a grass as such, although it has large broad leaves.

Libertia ‘Goldfinger’ is orange and more grassy.
