Flamin’® Phormium tenax ‘PH0S3’
- More vivid colour
- Tougher than other purpurea Phormiums
- Boasts red, orange and bronze tones
Description: Flamin’® Phormium is a semi compact mid sized Phormium with foliage that literally glows in the sun with red, orange and bronze tones. Flamin’® Phormium is simply stunning and it handles the heat of Sydney and Central NSW much better than most Phormiums. It’s low maintenance once established and moderately drought tolerant.
Size: 80 – 90cm high x 80 – 90cm wide.
Uses: Roadsides, mass plantings, feature plantings and gardens.
Position: Full sun to partly shaded positions. Tolerates heavy frost and moderate drought. Flamin’® Phormium suits a wide variety of soils but prefers free draining soil (especially in more humid climates like Sydney).
Care: Water as required for 8-13 weeks until established, then water as required. Avoid planting in summer for humid climates like Sydney, plant in a well mulched garden (chunky mulch is recommended). Ensure crown or base of plant is not below soil level. Use slow release fertiliser in spring if required. Remove older leaves as required and cut back halfway every 4-5 years (will look better with pruning every 4 years, this depends on your requirements).
Where it works: VIC, TAS, SA, WA, ACT & NSW (not suited to north of the Central Coast and QLD)
