Phormiums have cornered the market on structure and drama, which is likely why they're so popular. The erect or arching strap-like leaves come in diverse colours of pink, red, burgundy, chocolate, green and cream and are indispensable on the West Coast. Phormiums usually sail through our winters. However, the burgundy cultivars are generally hardier than the variegated ones. We stock 20+ cultivars each year.
Found mainly in swamps or low lying areas but will grow just about anywhere.
