The plant that you were asking about that are behind the New Zealand Flax plants, which are actually blooming, are known as "Anigozanthos" or more commonly as "Kangaroo Paws". I saw these for the first time today at a local nursery in Ocala Florida. They come in a variety of colors however I have only seen the yellow variety in person.

I have included a few pictures of the different varieties where you can see them in more detail.

beautiful bones and purple stones
Those are definitely New Zealand Flax. What cultivar is the question. It might be maori sunrise.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Frank Organ added this to Put Plants to Work in Small Gardens
Accent plants. Structure in the small garden is not just about solidity of dense evergreens, but also includes the use of striking accent plants such as Flaxes (Phormium spp).In a small garden, Phormiums can be the key ingredient of the planting. Their straplike leaves not only offer a wide variety of foliage color — from traditional green to variegations of yellow, green, red and deepest purple — but also provide movement, that other vital feature in small garden design.
Annie Thornton added this to Great Design Plant: New Zealand Flax
Botanical name: Phormium cultivars and hybridsCommon name: New Zealand flaxUSDA zones: 8 to 11 (find your zone)Water requirement: Little to moderateSun requirement: Full sun to partial shadeMature size: 1 to 9 feet tall and wide, depending on speciesBenefits and tolerances: Tolerant of coastal conditions, soil and wind Seasonal interest: Year-round foliage; flowers in spring or summerWhen to plant: Late spring or summer
