Sweet Mist® Phormium tenax ‘PH0S2’ PBR

  • Stunning colour contrast for the modern garden
  • Ultra compact
  • Exceptional bronze colour

Description: Sweet Mist® Phormium is an ultra-compact, bronze coloured Phormium. It is much tougher than Elfin and Bronze Baby with cleaner foliage and is one of the most compact forms available.

Size: 40cm high x 40cm wide.

Uses: Mass plantings, low borders, fill in plant, containers and patio pots.

Position: Full sun to partly shaded positions. Tolerates frost and moderate dry. Tolerates a wide variety of soil types 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). Ensure crown or base of plant is not below soil level. If required use slow release fertiliser in spring. Remove older foliage as required or every 5-7 years cut back to half the height (will look better with pruning every 5 years, this depends on your requirements).

Where it works: VIC, TAS, SA, WA, ACT & NSW (not suited to north of Sydney and QLD)
