Evergreen Baby™ Lomandra is tough, super compact and handles periodic wet feet
    The success of Tanika® Lomandra in Australia has proven just how popular fine leaf, tough, evergreen strappy leaf plants can be. However, some situations require a tough smaller plant, now Evergreen Baby™ Lomandra is the answer.

    It has masses of flowers, is sterile and extremely tough, being tolerant of wet feet and drought, performing well in full sun and shade and thrives in hot or cold conditions all whilst remaining extremely evergreen.

    Water as required for 8-13 weeks until established. Plant in a well mulched garden (chunky mulch is recommended). For best performance ensure crown or base of plant is not below soil or mulch level. If required use slow release fertiliser in spring. Every 3-5 years cut back 15cm above the ground if required (will look better with pruning every 3 years, this depends on your requirements). Occasional watering may be required in dry periods.
