Also known as New Zealand Flax, Phormium 'Platts Black' is a robust, fully hardy evergreen which forms a dense clump of upright, strappy leaves that are a deep chocolate-purple – a really great plant for adding a bit of a statement to your garden.
Stunning in a border and stylish in a large container, this phormium plant 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.
Easy to grow, phormium 'Platts Black' needs virtually no maintenance – it may even reward you with spikes of red flowers in late summer. Ultimately growing to around 100cm x 60cm, we supply well-established plant in a 3L pot ready for immediate planting.
