Lomandra Mist is a very attractive selection
of Lomandra confertifolia spp. rubiginosa with dark blue-grey
leaves that weep gracefully back to the ground. In summer fragrant
small yellow flower spikes emerge from reddish-brown buds. This
plant is extremely hardy, tolerating moderate frost as well as the dry conditions during periods of drought.
This form of Lomandra has been selected over many years
from the original variety Grey Cascade and is more vigorous in
habit enabling this plant to outperform other varieties in many
conditions and locations.
Mist grows to a height of 0.3 - 0.5m and has a spread of 0.3
- 0.5m making it excellent as a specimen plant; or it can also
be planted on mass for erosion control. This Lomandra is excellent
to use for contrast low level plantings where height restrictions
are required in urban streetscapes. Mist can be used to create
borders; or for understorey planting in the home garden. Mist’s
foliage stays lush all year round and is a no maintenance plant,
as this Lomandra never requires pruning.
