The verdant, dark green, narrow foliage is the outstanding feature of this ultra-tough, long-lived lomandra. The fine leaves and slightly weeping habit give this versatile lomandra a beautiful tussocky, grass-like appearance that makes it one of the best landscape plants on the market. It produces slightly fragrant flowers amongst the foliage and is perfect for borders, mass landscape plantings and is safe for playground use as well.
It is virtually maintenance free but can be cut back to the ground every few years if it starts to develop too much dead foliage.
