Phormium Tenax pupurea 7.5ltr

This remarkable evergreen perennial is cherished for its bold, architectural presence and striking foliage, making it a standout choice for adding drama to any garden or landscape.

With a mature height of approximately 5 to 6 feet, ‘Purpurea’ Phormium commands attention with its upright, sword-shaped leaves in shades of rich purple-red. Its dramatic foliage provides year-round interest and lends a touch of elegance to garden borders or containers.

While ‘Purpurea’ Phormium typically does not produce showy flowers, it may occasionally produce small, insignificant blooms on tall stalks. However, its primary appeal lies in its stunning foliage rather than its flowering display.

For optimal growth and coloration, plant ‘Purpurea’ Phormium in a position with well-drained soil and full to partial sunlight. It thrives in coastal areas and is tolerant of salt spray, making it an excellent choice for seaside gardens.

Planting in spring or autumn allows the plant to establish itself before periods of extreme temperatures. Regular feeding with a balanced fertilizer during the growing season will support healthy growth and vibrant foliage.

While ‘Purpurea’ Phormium may not directly attract pollinators with its blooms, its dense foliage provides valuable shelter and nesting sites for insects and small wildlife, contributing to the overall biodiversity of the garden. By incorporating ‘Purpurea’ Phormium into your outdoor space, you’re not only adding visual appeal but also supporting local ecosystems.
