Plant of the Month: Phormium Purple Haze

***Plant of the Month ***

Our Plant of the Month for March is the Phormium Purple Haze. The Phormium Purple Haze has a rich purple semi weeping foliage and will grow to a height of 1.2 metres and width to 1.5 metres. This small clumping New Zealand Flax is great in modern gardens and is extremely  hardy in coastal areas, will tolerate frost and high winds.  Whether you want to plant it in a pot or en masse or as an informal border it will add a stunning look to your garden. It prefers well drained soil in either full sun or part shade and has very low water requirements once established. To keep this Phormium looking it’s best you can remove old foliage and feed it with a slow release fertiliser once a year.
