Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
Phormium 'Rainbow Queen' is a rich bronze-green coloured specimen with a rosy edge and a sliver of cream to add more contrast. In the summer there are red tubular flowers which appear followed by robust seed-heads. No matter where these are planted, they will always become a focal point and create a dramatic and architectural display. Ideal in borders, beds and patio containers, they also look great when offset with gravel as this really draws the eye to the contrasting, architectural plant. It will appreciate full sun and at times some shade, and in the winter will need protecting for cold, harsh winds. If planted in containers simply move the pots to a more sheltered and protected area. Height 1m (39”) and spread 1.5m (59”).

Height Up to 100cm (39in)
Spread Up to 150cm (59in)

Grow Phormium on fertile, well-drained soil. Choose a protected position in full sun. Phormiums are well suited to mild coastal locations and can cope in poorer soils, but do enjoy a fertile soil - so it is well worth incorporating some well-rotted manure into the soil when planting.
Feed and water regularly until fully established. Once established, Phormium need little attention, but will require some winter protection should temperatures dip much below-5C (23F). Where winters are particularly cold and wet, it may be preferable to grow Phormiums in large patio containers that can be moved undercover during the coldest months.
