Phormium tenax 5 Litre Pot
Phormium or New Zealand Flax are evergreen plants that make a large clump of leathery, strap-like, upright foliage. They bare tall panicles of tubular flowers. Phormiums make beautiful architectural plants and like to be planted at the back of the border or as a feature specimen.
Phormiums require full sun or partial shade and a moist well drained soil. Cut out any dead or damaged leaves in spring with a sharp pair of secateurs. Propagate from seeds sown in Spring.
Phormium Tenax has bold stiff tongue like dark grey-green leaves and bares reddish purple flowers on long panicles in Summer when established. Height can reach 4m.
