NEW RELEASE - PHORMIUM SWEET MIST
A new must have - Phormium 'Sweet Mist' grown by Gardening Solutionz is the first of three new releases under the Foliage First plant range. It is one of the most compact, small forms of Phormium to be released on the market. Its beautiful bronze foliage provides stunning contrast to the structured garden whilst demanding very little in terms of maintenance; lending itself to the saying "big things come in small parcels". Phormium 'Sweet Mist' will be at home in the garden, in courtyard plantings, rockeries or even at the front door in a large pot. Good news for those of you exposed to the elements - throw a heavy frost or the wind from an exposed coastal positioning at this one and Phormium 'Sweet Mist' will come up trumps. Its bronze colouring suits planting amongst the lime green foliage of Euphorbia Kea, the twisted nature of Coprosma Lobster or even the silver toning of Astelia Silver Spear.
Noteworthy; is the methodology behind the plant selection of Foliage First plants. All plants have been carefully selected for use in New Zealand gardens and landscapes with many of the plants filling the requirements of strong root structures and low to no irrigation - lets keep our water as a precious resource; whilst providing the garden with colour and foliage for 365 days of the year.
