Lomandra hystrix

Mature tubestock, premium and ready to plant!

Plant Calculator


You might better know Lomandra Hystrix as the Green Matrush or Creek Matrush.

It’s a tufted, hardy plant with arching strap-like leaves that can reach 1.3 metres in length. This evergreen native brings the green all year round and then throws up short yellowy-green flower spikes with fluffy heads in spring.

Lomandra Hystrix likes wet soils and shade, but it will tolerate dry soils in the sun and deals well with frosts too. It’s a particularly tough no-maintenance plant that looks fresh and tropical but is totally useful. If you have an area of exposed soil Hystrix will fill it with class and prevent erosion.

If you’re a low maintenance gardener you need some Hystrix in your life.

I am currently 10-15cm tall

Quick Facts: 

  • What to use me for: I look great mass-planted in the border and as a foil to colourful shrubs or annuals. I love damp soil so put me around your pond for lush greenery. Last but not least I’m top notch soil erosion control when you mass plant me. Use the hystrix in wetter areas over the longifolia.

  • I grow to: I’ll reach 130cms high by 100cms wide.

  • Where to place me:  I tolerate all conditions.

  • How far to space me:  I’ll need 50cms of room.

  • Soil Conditions: Anything. I like all soils especially damp ones, but I can happily grow in dry soils too.
