Jester is one of the relatively new breed of Phormiums, it is slightly more compact than the more traditional varieties only reaching heights of approximately 1.2 metres with a similar spread. Jester makes a striking addition to the garden, foliage is deep pink edged green
Phormium originally from New Zealand, are versatile evergreen plants that tolerate a range of conditions, they cope well by the seaside where other plants have failed and can look at home in a variety of different planting schemes, and will happily sit in large pots. In recent years they have become increasingly popular in the UK this is mainly due to the fact that they grow quick, are easy to maintain and there is a large choice of varieties and colours. It makes a stunning centrepiece in a container, or an architectural specimen plant in the border either surrounded by coloured gravel or soil.
