Description Plant Care Q & A Goes Well With Description

An exciting new cultivar with stunning purple, almost black leaves.  This is one of the more compact Phormiums with an elegant weeping habit.  It may be grown in a container or, in a mixed border.  Phormium 'Platt's Black' will provide excellent contrast against grasses, or plants with silvery, bright foliage. As with all Phormiums this will tolerate coastal conditions and is another very worthy variety to include in a jungly, tropical themed scheme.  Will require fertile, free draining soil and will reach up to 1m in height and spread.
