Tanika® Lomandra is a drought tolerant landscape plant
In Spring 2012 Tanika® Lomandra had its 10th birthday as the best landscape plant in Australia. Its popularity keeps rising whether it’s for a home garden or a large commercial development. So why is it so popular?
Is it its clean fine dark green foliage and its bright golden flowers that make it a vast improvement over the common Lomandra?
Is it its evergreen foliage in cold frost and its legendary drought tolerance. No other Lomandra has ever come close and the ones that also have fine foliage simply never stay as clean.
If you want green and not straw brown in cold heat and drought then Tanika® Lomandra is the best and most reliable choice. Tanika® Lomandra has an average size of 60cm wide and high and if it gets taller than this, a trim every 4 to 5 years keeps it really tidy.
In Spring or Autumn either prune it into a ball shape or prune it hard back to a to about 15cm.
With its reliability and low maintenance Tanika® Lomandra has become Australia’s favourite evergreen plant.
