Description

A robust architectural plant with a flash of gold, evergreen Phormium tenax ‘Variegatum’ (New Zealand Flax) is low maintenance and easy to grow, providing year round interest with its long, upright variegated leaves. Over time this reliable and hardy RHS AGM variety forms a substantial plant and makes a fantastic focal point throughout the year. Use this sun-loving plant to create a contrast in mixed borders, as a feature in gravel gardens or as part of a Mediterranean themed design. Its tolerance to sea air and exposed sites also makes this a great choice for coastal gardens. Height: 1.5m (59”). Spread: 1.5cm (59”).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

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.
