A lovely steel blue foliaged Lomandra, a strappy leafed perennial native grass. Older leaves are more green, making a nice contrast. Great for massed planting and for bordering, it makes a great native substitute for Liriope. It is low maintenance and drought tolerant, and has an upright growth habit. Suits sun to part shade, and most soils as long as they are well drained. It can be cut back hard to rejuvenate the plant.

WHERE TO GET YOUR PLANT
Once you have found the plant that looks right for you, the next step is where to buy it.
Most nurseries stock a good range of plants, but due to space and supplies, they may not always have the plant that you are searching for in stock. If they don’t, they may be able to order it in for you if you request it.
Specialist nurseries are also able to give great advice, and if they don’t have the plant you have planned on, they can often suggest alternatives that will also work well for you.
