Evaluation of Lomandra
types for wet feet tolerance

Lomandra are one of the most popular plants in Australia; due to their tidy attractive evergreen foliage, toughness with drought and cold, and their low maintenance characteristics. Unfortunately, it is well known that most Lomandra do not tolerate prolonged wet feet, or heavy soils that get wet. 

Over the past 4 years Ozbreed has carried out 2 trials on 13 commonly available Lomandra confertifolia, fluviatilis, and longifolia types to test their tolerance for wet feet. Most Lomandra tested showed poor ability to survive in such conditions, however 2 types had a survival rate of 100%.
