How to take care of Phormium Tenax Purpureum

These plants can be grown in exposed, windy gardens and do well near the coast. They do well in any well-drained good garden soil, in full sun or light shade. Plant in a hole deep enough so that the root ball will be a little deeper than the plant was in it's container.

Water well after planitng and for a few weeks until the plant is established. Also suitable for growing in containers, in cold areas they can be overwintered in a cool room with a lot of light. Outdoors, they need winter protection
