Phormium Sweet MistSweet Mist is an ultra compact Phorium, with an exceptional bronze colour. This New Zealand Native adds an exiting choice for UK Landscape design. Its more compact foliage compared to other colourful Phormiums allows roadside, or large landscaped gardens to be planted with a low growing colourful plant.

Sweet Mist is small enough to be planted on roadsides, and not cause problems with line of sight. After you have grown Sweet mist, it will be your favourite Flax.

Phormium Sweet Mist Description: One of the most compact, small forms of Phormium released on the market. Its beautiful bronze foliage provides stunning contrast to the garden. Growing to an approximate height of 35-40cm tall, it provides a great alternative for the garden.

Uses: Ideal for mass planting as a low border or fill in plant. Its bronze colour makes it an excellent choice for contrasting with green foliage. Being a smaller form, Sweet Mist is well suited to the smaller modern garden. It is also good for containers and patios.

Phormium Sweet Mist Position: Grows well in full sun to shaded positions. Tolerates  frost and moderately dry conditions. Suitable for most soil types. Cold Hardy in London. In colder parts of the UK plant in sheltered spots. In very cold areas overwintering maybe required.

Care: Low maintenance once established. When planting Sweet Mist, ensure the crown or base of the plant is not planted below the soil level. Apply coarse grade mulch to reduce weed growth and keep the root zone cold and moist in Summer. Water as required. Mulching will help the plant survive better in colder areas.
