Lucky Stripe™ Lomandra is a variegated plant with clean contrasting foliage
    Lucky Stripe™ Lomandra is one of the only ultra-tough no fuss strappy leaf variegated plants with such mass planting appeal.

    From Cairns to Melbourne to Perth, Lucky Stripe™ Lomandra has ultra clean foliage, even in humid climates.

    Blemishes and spots usually greatly affect variegated strappy leaf plants, but Lucky Stripe™ Lomandra is an exception, generally remaining spot free.

    Years ago Silver Streak™ Dianella became popular due to its white and green foliage, but the plant did not perform long term in most Australian conditions.

    Now a similar colour contrast can be achieved with a super reliable long lived plant. Lucky Stripe™ Lomandra does not produce viable seed, so it will stay where it is planted. Grows well in dry and wet soils.
