Growing Lomandra hystrix

Lomandra hystrix flowers in summer. The species grows naturally in Queensland and New South Wales. The plant can be used as a soil binder for banks. It will cope with being flooded occasionally and poor drainage. It will also grow in heavy shade or in full sun. The plants can be left to fend for themselves in many locations and are frost hardy.

These plants also can be planted in pots for outside cultivation or be used as indoor plants. The foiliage will arch over and be useful for concealing areas in the garden, or softening the edges of concrete.

Other species with this tufted growth habit look good growing at the base of trees. This Lomandra would look good in that situation also.
