Phormium 'Yellow Wave' is an evergreen, clump-forming perennial with long arching, blade-like leaves of 2 feet in length, heavily striped with bright yellow. This is an excellent plant that is native to New Zealand and bears its beautiful colours from its tropical background. Its perfect upright clump forming habit makes it suitable as border shrubs. Their elegant architectural shape makes garden containers look stylish.
Phormium will have a real impact in your garden as it will stand proudly as a single specimen with attractive glossy foliage. It produces long blade-like leaves with bright yellow bands that are margined with bright green. This luminous display of colours that Phormium Yellow Wave will set in your garden will be appreciated for its uniqueness. In summers, the plant will bloom panicles of tubular flowers that attract hummingbirds.
These are easy to grow plants that will thrive in full sun or partial shade, demand low care and moderate watering. Plant them in containers with good quality potting soil that is well-drained. Phormium roots dislike clogging of water and also avoid direct sun in hot afternoons.
Once established, Phormium plans develop tolerant to drought or dry conditions. These are cold hardy plants but need protection from winter frost. Prune them to remove any damaged leaves annually.
Their glossy foliage will provide the necessary backdrop for other colourful plants. Plant them in borders mixed with other flowering shrubs. These are excellent plants for coastal gardens or rockeries. Use them to decorate your patio or deck in large containers. Phormium Yellow Wave is sure to attract attention with bright and vibrant colours in any garden.
