Product Description

Also known as New Zealand Flax, Phormium 'Rainbow Queen' is a robust, fully hardy evergreen which forms a dense clump of sword-like leaves - a really great plant for adding a bit of a statement to your garden.

Stunning in a border and stylish in a container, this recently introduced phormium plant has particularly striking, bright bronze-green, red-edged leaves, and 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 'Pink Panther' is a compact form, and needs virtually no maintenance it may even reward you with spikes of red flowers in late summer.

Ultimately growing to around 150cm, we supply an established plant in a 9cm pot ready for immediate planting.

Plant Information

Top Tips

  • Keep plants well-watered while they establish, especially if planted up in a pot.
  • Hardy to -5C, protect from cold winds as it is these that tend to cause the most damage to young plants.

Care Guide

  • Grow Phormiums in a sunny, sheltered site in well-drained soil. Protect from frost and winds.
  • Dig a planting hole 3 x wider than the roots of the shrub you're planting and mix some well-rotted compost or manure with the soil from the hole and use this to re-fill once the shrub is in place.
  • We've found that a square hole is better than a round one as the new roots, once they reach the edges tend to grow in a circle round the circumference of the hole whereas when they reach the corners of a square hole, they find it easier to grow through. Before planting soak container-grown shrubs thoroughly and allow to drain. Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots. Add Mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help plants establish quicker. Place your shrub in the hole at the same level at the pot. Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling) and firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball. Water well and mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc. If you're planting into pots, place some old rocks, stones or gravel in the bottom of the pot for drainage and ballast. Use the best compost you can buy and some sand or grit for drainage.
