Sweet Mist® - Foliage First Landscape Gardening Plants

SWEET MIST® is an ultra compact Phorium, with an exceptional bronze colour. Due to its size, it is not as tolerant to humidity as larger Phormiums, however it will thrive in temperate areas in Australia, including VIC, SA, WA, TAS, ACT and the southern Coast of NSW.

Phormiums need a little more water than Dianella but are still low water users in South Australia.

Description: One of the most compact, small forms of Phormium released on the market. Its beautiful bronze foliage provides stunning contrast to the garden. Growing to an approximate height of 35-40cm tall, it provides a great alternative to the garden.

Uses: Ideal for mass planting as a low border or fill in plant. Its bronze colour makes it an excellent choice for contrasting with green foliage. Being a smaller form, Sweet Mist is well suited to the smaller modern garden. It is also good for containers and patios.

Position: Grows well in full sun to shaded positions. Tolerates heavy frost and moderately dry conditions. Suitable for most soil types. In more humid areas care should be taken to plant in well drained soils.

Care: Low maintenance once established. When planting Sweet Mist, ensure the crown or base of the plant is not planted below the soil level. Apply coarse grade mulch to reduce weed growth and keep the root zone cold and moist. Water as required.
