A Realistic Reference List of Phormiums

Increased popularity has fueled the creation of countless new cultivars. However, what's featured in a magazine, and what is usually available in the market on a regular basis are often at odds. Here is a short list of great Phormiums that you can depend on getting from Bamboo Pipeline on a consistent basis.
