Botanic Name: Phormium tenax ‘Yellow Wave’

Clumping/Strappy – Ideal for Mass Planting

I am a Phormium with a wide bright yellow strip down the centre of my dramatic sword shaped leaves. Incredibly hardy I am favoured to add structure and architectural form to the garden. Adaptable I will perform well in pots and other containers providing options in hard landscapes.

In spring through to summer I produce very large dark flower spikes with red bird attracting blooms. I am a great feature plant in the garden either singly or in groups. My upright habit means I can be an effective screening option.
