A great new larger growing Lomandra with a slim, upright and symmetrical habit. Very tough for gardens and large landscaping projects, and is a good hard wearing yet soft to fall on plant for kids playgrounds. It has vibrant green foliage with profuse perfumed golden yellow flowers. It is hardy and easy care for sub tropical to cool climates. Good for coastal sites and tolerates moderate frost. Grows to a metre high and wide.
Cut back hard if needed to tidy, and the plant will reshoot from the underground rhizome. Likes well drained soil. The seeds are edible.

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.
