  • Phormium Flashdance

    DESIGN EDGE® is a fashionable group of plants that provide an instant sculptural statement. Their coloured leaves combined with statuesque appearance provide a dramatic visual effect all year round. Their long upright pointed leaves allow you to create great effects in Mediterranean, tropical and formal styled gardens. They contrast superbly with shaped hedges, conjuring a relaxed and stylish look.

    Year round colour

    The leaves of Phormium tenax Flashdance will provide a multi-coloured accent of cream, green and pinky-apricot in gardens all year long. Its leaves change colour from season to season, where in summer more cream is present, and in winter there is more pink. So its colour "flashes" and changes during the year.

    Best growing conditions

    Flashdance prefers dry summer conditions with low humidity. It is not suited to tropical climates. It can be grown as a container plant in subtropical climates provided it is sheltered from summer rainfall so that the humidity around the base of the plant is kept to a minimum. Some shade protection is necessary in mid summer to keep the soil and therefore the root system cooler. It is drought tolerant in coastal gardens but responds well to irrigation, particularly when planted in light soils. Climate Zones: 1 to 3.
