A low care, great looking strappy foliage plant, Lomandra ‘Lime Tuff’ has a range of landscaping uses.
This is a hybrid, Lomandra longifolia x confertifolia, and it grows well in range of conditions as long as drainage is good.
Used as a boarder plant along pathways or driveways. Mass planted in commercial landscaping, or planted in clumps beneath trees and a good space.
Try it as a low screening plant along fence lines, or as a container plant for year round foliage. For mass planting or borders try a spacing of around .4m
If planted in a well drained soil of medium fertility, you will have few problems once established.
Pruning is not essential, however many gardeners do prune back to a ball every 3 – 4 years just to freshen up the foliage a little.
Fertiliser is not required except in very poor soils. Over fertilisation can cause faster growth than is desirable, and cause need for extra maintenance, and also affect foliage colour.
