- Unique minty green and chocolate brown foliage
- Ideal for mass planting or as a fill in plant
- Excellent plant for VIC, SA & WA
Description: The Chocomint Mist™ plant is an ultra compact Phormium with unique contrasting minty green foliage mixed with chocolate brown. It will provide colour contrast all year round with a great compact height.
Size: 40cm high x 40cm wide.
Uses: Mass plantings for low borders or as a fill in plant. Good for containers and patio pots.
Position: Full sun to part shade. Tolerates heavy frost to dry conditions. Tolerates a wide variety of soils but prefers free draining soil. In Sydney it needs a shaded position and irrigation, except for coastal positions which will handle full sun.
Care: Water as required for 8-13 weeks until established, needs water in summer. Plant in a well mulched garden (chunky mulch is recommended), do not cover base of plant with mulch or soil. If required use slow release fertiliser in spring. Remove older foliage as required or every 2-5 years cut back to half the height (will look better with pruning every 2 years, this depends on your requirements).
Where it works: VIC, TAS, SA, WA, ACT & NSW (not suited to north of Sydney and QLD)
