Why We Love It

Phormium 'Sundowner' is an evergreen with classic style.

It's a naturally clump-forming grass with muted green leaves that grow up to 1.5 m tall.

The irregular bronze stripes and occasional yellow flowers are a welcome surprise.

Planting Calendar

Plant in March, April, May.

Flowers in June, July, August.

Planting and Care

Choose a sunny spot and sand or loam-based soil of any pH.

Ensure it drains well and keep it moist.

Into the Ground

  1. Water the plant thoroughly before planting.
  2. Make a hole that's twice the width of the rootball but the same depth.
  3. Add some organic matter to the soil.
  4. Remove the temporary container and plant at the same height as it was growing in the pot, just burying the roots.
  5. Firm the soil around the plant using your hands.
  6. Water well and don’t allow the soil to dry out.

Into a Pot

  1. Find a pot that's twice the size of the rootball.
  2. Ensure it has plenty of drainage holes.
  3. Fill with good quality compost.
  4. Make a hole slightly bigger than the rootball.
  5. Place the plant into the hole at soil level.
  6. Firm in and water well.
