Description: Shara™ Lomandra is a tough fine leaf compact form with blue grey tones and masses of yellow flowers that sit above the foliage. A very drought tough plant with a smaller height for mass planting in landscapes. Shara™ Lomandra is very Phytophthora tolerant which makes it suitable for use in more humid climates and tolerating heavier soils. It is also a soft and kid friendly plant.

Shara™ Lomandra is a good erosion control option as it strengthens the soil 225%. See research for more information.

Size: 45-55 cm high x 50 cm wide.

Planting Density: 4-6 plants per m², 2-3 plants per linear metre.

Uses: Mass planting in wet and dry areas.

Position: Full sun to moderate shade. Drought and very cold tolerant. Shara™ Lomandra suits a wide variety of soils. Can tolerate periodic wet feet, but not permanent.

Care: Water as required for 8-13 weeks until established. Plant in a well mulched garden (chunky mulch is recommended). For best performance ensure crown or base of plant is not below soil or mulch level. If required use slow release fertiliser in spring. Every 3-10 years cut back 15cm above the ground if required (will look better with pruning every 3 years, this depends on your requirements).

Where it works: QLD, NSW, ACT, VIC, TAS, SA & WA.
