Lomandra longifolia Breeze
Lomandra longifolia Breeze (Dwarf Mat Rush) - An evergreen perennial with narrow deep green strap-shaped leaves that are curiously cut as though with pinking shears at the tips. This cultivar reaches to 24 to 40 inches tall and spreads to about the same. Its medium green, thick, strap-like leaves are accented by spiny flower spikes with tiny creamy yellow male flowers, lightly scented like sweet honey in the afternoon. It is tolerant of a wide range of conditions and requires little to no maintenance once established. Plant in full sun to moderate shade. It is drought tolerant once established, but can also tolerate regular irrigation or even wet soils. Hardy to below 20° F. A useful plant for mass plantings in difficult situations, including the Eucalyptus understory.
