I have a work colleague who brought in some plants (all the same species) to share at work and we don't know the name of it. I have posted a few photos to show it as best I can. Sorry the photos are small resolution - hope still decent enough.
Your help is much appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
Thanks Mike for the reply.
We had discussed Phormium at the time I took the photos but we were not sure. I waited a bit to see if there was anymore suggestions, but not - so we'll go with Phormium.
they struck me as looking a bit like Pampas grass.
A quick and easy way to tell is if the edges of the leaves have minute teeth along them. Please be VERY CAREFUL!! The hooks are sharp enough to cut through skin but by running your finger lightly along the edge from base of the leaf towards the tip you will be able to feel if they are their or not. Phormium does not have hooks along the edge so will feel smooth if you do the same thing.
The other point being that Pampas self seed a great deal more than Phormium...
Hope that helps a little.
I suggested Phormium because of the way the leaves are folded at the base. I think I could see that in your specimen. However, I don't know if other genera (as well as Phormium) show that feature.
