Lomandra spicata

Description

Lomandra Spicata - Let’s hear it for our native plants, those robust souls that grow like crazy because they feel at home.

Lomandra Spicata is one of those tough evergreen beauties that originate here meaning she’ll grow in a wide range of soils without fuss and tolerate heat or frosts without bothering you too much

She has flat green tufted leaves that can reach 80cms long and produces clusters of brilliant orange-coloured fruit in summer. She prefers damp soil, and if you can give her a well-watered spot she’ll reach a metre in width.

As well as looking totally tropical, architectural and fresh the Lomandra Spicata is a sure-fire way to prevent soil erosion.  Simply plant a large number of them together and your soil is in safe hands.

Oh, and she’s also the host plant for our rare skipper butterfly - wildlife lovers sign up right here.

Quick Facts: 

  • What to use me for: I fill a border with lush greenery and brighten up your patio in a well-watered pot. I fend off soil erosion and attract rare butterflies.

  • I grow to: I’ll reach 80cms in height and metre wide.

  • Where to place me: I’m native so I’ll cope with just about anything except waterlogged soils. I like sun and shade conditions. 

  • How far to space me: Give me 50cm to stretch my tufty leaves out.

  • Soil Conditions: I’m not fussy but I do best in damp soils. 

Our plants are beautifully grown, mature tube stock with well-developed roots. They are guaranteed sun-hardened, can be planted directly into the ground and are excellent performers for your garden.

We carefully package your plants into a customised box to ensure safe transport, healthy plants and delivery to your door.

Please take care when choosing your plants. Some plants are poisonous and individuals may be more sensitive or react differently
