how hardy are phormiums?after this harsh winter mine is not looking its best -could it be dead ?

On plant Phormium



Some people have lost Phormiums this year, in colder parts of the UK (like Yorkshire, I'd guess!) but they are pretty hardy and usually survive our winters perfectly well. Remove all dead or damaged leaves carefully in case there's any new growth coming through.
