LUCKY STRIPE™ Lomandra
Lucky Stripe™ Lomandra hystrix ‘LMV200’ PBR
- Clean variegated foliage
- Reliable and tough, even in humid climates
- Ideal for erosion control, mass roadside plantings, rain gardens and green walls
Description: Lucky Stripe™ Lomandra is one of the only ultra-tough no fuss strappy leaf variegated plants with such mass planting appeal. From Cairns to Melbourne to Perth, Lucky Stripe™ Lomandra has ultra clean foliage, even in humid climates.
Blemishes and spots usually greatly affect variegated strappy leaf plants, but Lucky Stripe™ Lomandra is an exception, generally remaining spot free.
Years ago Silver Streak™ Dianella became popular due to its white and green foliage, but the plant did not perform long term in most Australian conditions.
Now a similar colour contrast can be achieved with a super reliable long lived plant. Lucky Stripe™ Lomandra rarely, if ever, produces viable seed, so it will stay where it is planted. Grows well in dry and wet soils.
