Description
Linear, sword-like leaves form an arching, evergreen clump that makes a superb statement plant. Phormiums are grown for their striking appearance, and this one is certainly eye-catching with its dramatic, dark, bronze-black colouring. In late summer, Phormium ‘Black Velvet’ may also produce spikes of tubular red blooms. This architectural perennial adds punctuation to sunny beds and borders, and makes an excellent container plant for the patio. New Zealand Flax plants are low maintenance, and easy to grow, coping well in a wide range of conditions, including challenging coastal locations. Height: 90cm (36"). Spread: 60cm (24").

How to Grow
Grow Phormium on fertile, well-drained soil. Choose a protected position in full sun. Phormiums are well suited to mild coastal locations and can cope in poorer soils, but do enjoy a fertile soil - so it is well worth incorporating some well-rotted manure into the soil when planting.
More Info
Feed and water regularly until fully established. Once established, Phormium need little attention, but will require some winter protection should temperatures dip much below-5C (23F). Where winters are particularly cold and wet, it may be preferable to grow Phormiums in large patio containers that can be moved undercover during the coldest months.
