killing phormium

Mary OhIci asked 10 years ago

I want to get rid of an old phformium -just plain green one- its too big and it would be impossible to cut it down. I usually trim them with a sharp knife but for this one I would spend a week to get rid of it. I want to replant the spot with something else and this one survived the frost so I need something else please.

Phormium can be killed by spraying with Roundup. But you will have to wait until the base rots to remove it.
