Lomandra longifolia Breeze is a tufted dioecious perennial herb with long narrow blade-like leaves that arise from a central stemless base. Some of the many great attributes of this versatile plant is the ability to perform well near the coast and in both sun and shade. Originally from the diverse habitats of rainforests to arid areas in Australia, Lomandra has very low water requirements and is considered summer-dry tolerant. It also grows more rapidly with regular watering. This very flexible and versatile plant appreciates being cut back hard to tight mounds no more than 6″ tall. This aggressive cutting back cleans up older foliage and promotes new growth.
