If you need a weeping foliage plant Tropic Cascade™ Lomandra fits the bill, it’s just so weepingly beautiful. It is certainly more compact than the straight hystrix form but what really makes it outstanding is its beautiful weeping green foliage.

It tolerates most soil types and makes a great rain garden plant. This plant loves Queensland but also grows well in colder states like VIctoria, especially in regions like Melbourne.
