Description: Tanika® Lomandra has been performing in landscapes across Australia for over a decade. An evergreen, improved compact fine leaf form, this low maintenance plant is perfect for landscape professionals and gardeners alike.
Small yellow flowers from April to October, Tanika® Lomandra is also soft to touch so kids will enjoy this plant as well. Tanika® Lomandra is ideal for drought tolerance on slopes and dryland areas.
Not recommended for low lying areas Sydney and north due to the increase of phytophthora in the landscape. Shara™ and Evergreen Baby™ Lomandra are phytophthora resistant alternatives for these situations.
