Here are five reasons to plant Phormium tenax:

  • Very hardy – will tolerate most conditions except full shade. Tremendously effective in exposed coastal conditions.
  • Impact – the vigorous clump-forming nature of the Phormium tenax creates an excellent focal point quick time.
  • Coastal – you live on the coast, nothing seems to work – this will.
  • Low maintenance – once established Phormium tenax requries very little care, just a tidy up of old growth a couple of times a year. Additional watering or feeding will be unnecessary unless potted. Phormium tenax is happy in most soils too.
  • Themed – its appearance lends itself to palm trees, Australisian planting schemes, dry gardens and even Mediterranean planting schemes.
