EVERGREEN BABY™ Lomandra
Evergreen Baby™ Lomandra labill ‘LM600’ PBR
- Compact, fine leaved and evergreen Lomandra
- Very tough: wet feet tolerant and drought tolerant
- Perfect when a small but tough Lomandra is needed
Description: A form that handles drought and wet feet has been highly sought after. Tanika® Lomandra proves how popular a fine leaf, tough, evergreen strappy leaf plant can be.
However, in some situations a tough smaller plant is needed, and finally a Lomandra longifolia based plant has the answer. Along with these benefits, Evergreen Baby™ Lomandra gets lots of golden flowers in spring and is male sterile.
This fine leafed, compact and evergreen plant is about half the size of the popular Tanika® Lomandra. (See notes section below for more information)
Size: 40-45 cm high x 45 cm wide.
Planting Density: 4-8 plants per m², 2-4 plants per linear metre.
Uses: Mass planting, feature plant, borders.
Position: Full sun to part shade. Tolerates frost, drought and periodic wet feet. Evergreen Baby™ Lomandra works in sandy loam to heavy clay soil types.
Care: Water as required for 8-13 weeks until established. Plant in a well mulched garden (chunky mulch is recommended). Ensure crown or base of plant is not below soil or mulch level.
If required use slow release fertiliser in spring. Every 3-5 years cut back 15cm above the ground if required (will look better with pruning every 3 years, this depends on your requirements).
Occassional watering may be required in dry periods.
Where it works: QLD (does not work in northern QLD), NSW, ACT, VIC, SA & WA.
