Wingarra® Lomandra is a strappy leaf plant with large Deep Rhizomes

Wingarra® Lomandra contertifolia

This tough little Lomandra has a very fine texture which from a distance gives it the appearance of a native tussock grass. Better still this Wingarra® Lomandra has been here for 12 years and has never been pruned. Look how evergreen it is.

Unlike Tussock grass or Poa, Wingarra® Lomandra will generally not need trimming. Its blue appearance provides a nice contrast to other plants. Being a Lomandra contertifolia, Wingarra® Lomandra is slower than Lomandra longifolia types so larger pot sizes are recommended. Wingarra® Lomandra is particularly good for areas that get part shade.
