Report a problem
An old cultivar that has proven to be extremely tough in the Pacific Northwest. To only 18"-2 ft tall, with dark reddish leaves that are a bit twisted, this phormium can be a workhorse in your garden, in large plantings, or in containers. Accepts full to part sun and, though somewhat drought tolerant prefers regular summer water. Should have reasonable drainage as well. Frost hardy to 15F, USDA zone 8b, but may resprout from lower temperatures if protected.
