Lomandra longifolia ‘Verday’ – Lomandra

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.

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.
