I bought a few Phorniums from a garden centre , They were massive and weighed a ton . Reduced to £8 from £30 . The rainbow warrier was split up into 5 big pieces . The green Wave was split into 3 it had been £20 down to£8 . Bought another lost label Phornium and split it into 3 . They are all still big plants with massive leaves .
My first Phornium , P . Tennex we bought in Cornwal over 20 yrs ago , Split it up straight away and gave some away,
During the bad winter we had in2012 we thought we had lost them all . But we pulled out the soggy leaves and cut the remaining down to about 10 inches. That summer they allstarted sending new shoots up .I now have a selection of lovely phorniums.
