Phormium are evergreen architectural perennials popularly grown as specimen plants or as striking borders. These are native New Zealand plants also called as Flax plants because of their fibre and flax used by native people in past.
Flamingo is one of the Phormium variety that features long sword-like leaves bearing vertical stripes in rose pink colour. This spiky appearance makes it a great border plant in a garden that will brighten up dull corners easily. Its upright, clump-forming habit makes it a wonderful bush to have in your garden.
Flamingo Flax perennials are known for their care free growth with striking foliage of pink long blades carrying hints of yellow, green and orange in the vertical stripes. These leaves grow up to a height of 2 feet and their arching habit simply makes them look stylish. When the plant will mature, it will produce tall stalks with tubular yellow and green flowers in summer that attract hummingbirds.
Phormium Flamingo will perform well with less sunlight. Plant them in shade or spots that receive partial sunlight, in a well-drained soil. You can add a layer of mulch with organic compost to enhance the growth of young plants. Once established, they will be able to cope up with dry conditions. Flamingo is cold hardy but extreme frost might damage its leaves.
These are easy to grow, low maintenance plants that one can grow indoors as houseplants. Use them as single specimen in large garden containers or plant them alongside borders. Phormium Flamingo will decorate any flowering shrubs or a patio. It is such an elegant bush that glimmers in sunlight, most suitable for coastal gardens.
