SORRY WE CAN ONLY SHIP ONE GALLON PHORMIUMS.  For customers on  Lower Vancouver Island or Lower Mainland of BC, we can usually deliver by truck right to your door. 

(New Zealand Flax)   Tough dependable evergreen perennials, Phormiums are useful for their dramatic effect in the garden or in containers. 

Growing outside in Zone 8, Phormiums prefer well-drained, moist, fertile soil, though we have found that they will tolerate many other conditions even a fair bit of drought. Give as much sun and heat as you can, although they will also grow in some shade.  

Phormiums do have blooms - but most do not bloom dependably in our northern climate.  P. hookeri Tricolor is the only variety to consistently bloom here on the West Coast.  We have indicated in the descriptions which ones have bloomed at our Nursery.

 

Phormiums are difficult to propagate and some are slow to grow. Certain varieties are in extremely short supply. To ensure getting some in your order, give substitutions. We ship Phormiums with as much soil as possible, but sometimes their roots don't hold the soil very well outside the pots.  As a result of this, we will only ship one gallon size Phormium.
