Phormium tenax 'Sundowner' is a robust, fully hardy evergreen statement plant that produces dense clumps of sword-like leaves.
Also know as the flax lily, this phormium plant has striking, bronze-green leaves striped with red and pink, and grows with a compact nature - so won't overshadow other garden features, plus it looks stylish in pots, containers and borders.
Phormiums prefer to be planted in hot and dry sites, although will tolerate partial shade, and make a great candidate for Mediterranean or gravel gardens, where their upright leaves make an ideal foil for other plants.
Fully deserving the coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.
Easy to grow, phormium 'Sundowner' requires more-or-less zero maintenance, and may even reward you with spikes of yellow flowers towards the tail end of summer.
Supplied as an established plant in a 3L pot, ready for immediate planting.
