Isle of Wight, United Kingdom
I've bought 6 Phormium Tricolour to form part of an informal hedge with some Coprosma Fireburst. I have since found out that there are 2 varieties of Phormium Tricolour, one Tenax which is huge and the other is cookianum which is then dwarf variety. The cookianum is the one I want but as I bought the plants from B&Q the labels are lacking in information! Is there any way you can tell the difference between Tenax and cookianum? i have a horrid feeling I'm going to have to dig them up and replace them.
