Wingarra® Lomandra confertifolia ‘SIR5’ PBR
- Toughest Lomandra confertifolia available
- Looks like a grass, but rarely needs trimming
- Extremely low maintenance
Description: Wingarra® Lomandra has large deep rhizomes, making it tougher than other confertifolia types. It has fine textured, blue-green foliage and a compact clumping form.
Small yellow flowers appear from September to November. Like all confertifolia’s, Wingarra® Lomandra is slightly slower to establish than other Lomandras, a higher planting rate or larger pot sizes are recommended for cooler climates.
Size: 40 cm high x 60 cm wide.
Planting Density: 4–8 plants per m², 2–4 plants per linear metre.
Uses: Mass planting or border planting.
Position: Full sun to part shade. Tolerates humidity, drought and frost. Wingarra® Lomandra suits sandy, sandy loam to clay soils.
Care: Water as required for 8-13 weeks until established. Occasional watering may be required for dry inland regions, WA and SA. Plant in a well mulched garden (chunky mulch is recommended).
