Lomandra Hystrix 'Mat Rush' - 30+ Seeds

A tufted hardy plant with arching strap like leaves to 1.2 metres long with shorter yellow green flower spikes which are seen in spring.

Naturally grows on the edge of waterways and in moist gullies making it ideal for us around ponds or water features although it will also tolerate dry conditions in areas of summer rainfall.

The plant also provided the indigenous people with seeds which were ground into a flour to make cakes. The tender leaf bases were eaten.

Endemic to New South Wales and Queensland.

Adaptable to most soils and positions but grows more vigorously in moist soils, including full sun to 90% shade, drought and frost resistant.
