Phormium ‘Black Magic’ has become a landscape favourite for its elegant, low growing, clumps of spiky, jet-black foliage, bordered with a very fine lime-green stripe. This outstanding colour and architectural form places ‘Black Magic’ in the top performers of the flax and grass-like category, providing year-round interest for shrub borders and containers. It is also well-suited to low maintenance and contemporary, or minimalist gardens. Plant in moist, fertile, well-drained soil, in sun or semi-shade. Wind, coastal and frost tolerant. Evergreen.
Phormium ‘Royal Flush’ is an outstanding selection, sporting highly polished, deep burgundy foliage. It forms an elegant, nicely formed clump of slightly arching foliage with good architectural form. Use ‘Royal Flush’ as textural and colour contrast in garden borders or containers. Repeat planting throughout the garden will create an appealing rhythmic effect of colour, texture and form. An ideal choice for exposed and coastal gardens and although tolerant of dry soils, the best performance comes from planting in moist, fertile, well-drained soil. Evergreen.
