Phormium are evergreen perennials that display often colourful spikes of thick, strap-shaped leaves adorned with erect panicles of small, tubular flowers that flourish throughout the summer. Phormium are best suited to flower beds and borders within a low maintenance, courtyard or coastal garden. You should expect to see Phormium grow to an approximate height of 4m (13’) and a spread of 2.5m (8’).
Phormium are best planted in well-drained soil of loam and sand within an acidic, alkaline and neutral PH balance. They are generally greedy plants and will grow at a significant rate if they are well fed. They are happy to be positioned in an exposed area and are an ideal introduction to a coastal garden. They are tolerant to both full sun and part shade.
It may be necessary to cut off any dead or dying leaves when needed to retain a healthy shape. Fertilisation and mulch is not usually needed but a top dressing of compost will help to add vital nutrients to the soil. Water Phormium during periods of dry weather.
