Flamin’® Phormium is a rich coloured mid sized plant. But it isn’t its vibrant colour that makes it better than other Phormium types. It’s Flamin’® Phormium’s ability to better withstand the heat. Sure, it won’t work in Queensland, but in Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Adelaide and Perth, it survives far better than any other purperea Phormium.

In the sunlight, Flamin’® Phormium literally glows, and that’s where it got its name from. Flamin’® like any Phormium prefers reasonable soil, and beifits from a yearly slow release fertiliser application. If you want to keep it smaller, simply cut it back in Spring or Autumn every 3 to 5 years.

Leave a few leaves out the side for a few weeks, and then cut them off as well when the new shoots appear. For reliable foliage contrast 365 days per year, give Flamin’® Phormium a go.
