Care Guide

Excellent pest and disease resistance

Generally pest and disease free. Watch out for Phormium mealybug - these grey 5mm long insects can form colonies on the upper leaves. Small populations can be tolerated, but more than this will require pruning out of affected foliage.

Water when new

Water regularly when newly planted, especially during dry periods. Once the roots have established, it will need very little watering except in prolonged hot and dry periods.

Full sun to partial shade

Grows best in full sun but will tolerate partial shade

Any moist, well-drained soil

Thrives in a variety of soils as long as they're well-draining. If your soil is particularly clay-heavy and/or gets waterlogged often then consider mixing in plenty of organic matter such as garden compost and possibly some perlite to improve drainage.

No feeding required

No need to feed - but you can give the soil a nutrient boost by applying a layer of mulch each spring. https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0513/3428/3424/files/pruning_3x_4d3eaf73-f629-45e0-87a5-6f14f5f005fc.png?v=1613300718
