Phormium 'Jester'

New Zealand flax

7.5 litre pot £79.99
  • Position: full sun/partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: July to August
  • Hardiness: frost hardy (may need winter protection)

    The colourful, strap-shaped foliage of this phormium is a luscious blend of warm apricot-pink and greyish green, and forms an attractive, fountain-like clump. This combination of bright foliage and good form makes it a very eye-catching specimen, so it can be used as a stunning focal point in mixed planting schemes. It will also dazzle when potted up and placed on the patio - and the sprays of summer flowers are a bonus!

  • Garden care: In late spring, remove any dead or damaged leaves and apply a mulch of well-rotted organic matter to stimulate vigorous new growth.
