Plant of the week - Phormium 'Surfer', Carex 'Frosted Curls'

Phormium 'Surfer' is one of the phormium family that has unique, striking, olive green foliage with bronze/black edged leaves. The twisted leaves form fairly fast growing clumps up to 75cm tall. The foliage colours lend to many planting styles and can be seen being used in commercial as well as residential landscape design planting schemes.
Carex 'Frosted Curls' is an outstanding New Zealand native grass, it is hardy in most soil situations, best grown where the soil is not too water logged. The light green/silver foliage is soft on the eye, blends well into most landscape design situations, has beautiful foliage movement in the wind. A definite favourite plant for any silver/white garden lover.
