- Pot or garden culture
- Dry tolerant once established
- Striking accent foliage
Phormium tenax Lemon Spritzer will provide a bright yellow and green striped accent colour in gardens all year long. Its compact clumping habit and striking foliage makes this variety a great choice for attractive patio containers or for mass planting in the garden.
It is drought tolerant in coastal gardens but responds well to irrigation, particularly when planted in light soils. At temperatures above 45 degrees C foliage burn has occurred otherwise it is one of the toughest Phormiums available. Lemon Spritzer prefers dry summer conditions with low humidity. It is not suited to tropical climates.
