Lomandra longifolia ‘Dalliance’ – Lomandra

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.
