Common Name: Spiny Headed Mat-Rush
Availabilty: In Stock
Lomandra longifolia, or the Spiny Headed Mat-Rush as it can be more commonly known, is one of our popular Lomandra varieties. Incredibly low maintenance and thriving in most environments, this little guy is incredibly hardy. Perfect for revegetation, low maintenance gardens, cut flowers, borders, bush scapes and hard-to-grow areas.
Growing up to 1 metre all around, cream-brown flowers form in clusters on long stems. Plant en masse for an attractive weed control solution, it is fast growing and ideal for erosion control.
This is a type of Australian "Bush Tucker". The seeds, flowers, and the white bases of the leaves are all edible, however, this plant sports large sharp spikes, so you'll want to be careful trying this one!
Hardy to frost, drought, wind & salt. Most well drained soils, hardy in arid-wet. Full sun or part shade.
Lomandra longifolia is better in dry soils or conditions than the Lomandra hystrix, but we recommend considering the Lomandra hystrix for wet soils or more humid locations.
