i dont know its about 30" now and ive had it about 5 years starting in a pot.i thaught it was a cordaline but the more it grows the more it resembles a flax i love the colour.it doesnt like loads of water.

Nah - I'm a right weed - I'd break first! I once divided up one of my phormiums - one of the hardest things I've ever done in the garden - it was SO TOUGH! Ended up taking a hacksaw to the rootstock - took me almost a full day and the plant wasn't even that big to begin with!
