Also known as the flax lily, Phormium tenax 'Sundowner' is a robust, fully hardy evergreen which forms a dense clump of sword-like leaves - a really great plant for adding a bit of a statement to your garden.
Stunning in a border and stylish in a container, this phormium plant has particularly striking, bronze-green leaves striped with red and pink, and is a compact form - meaning that it won't overshadow everything in your garden plus you can grow it in a pot!
Phormiums prefer a hot dry site (although will tolerate partial shade) and make a great candidate for a Mediterranean garden or a gravel garden where their upright leaves make a great foil for many other coloured plants.
Fully deserving its 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' needs virtually no maintenance – it may even reward you with spikes of yellow flowers in late summer. Ultimately growing to around 1.5m, we supply well-established plant in a 3L pot ready for immediate planting.
