Lomandra - Echidna Grass
Lomandra Confertifolia - Echidna Grass
Description: This little Aussie wonder is a rare and exciting ''new selection'' of Lomandra confertifolia, a small fine leafed grass that resembles the Aussie echidna. As the name suggests, Echidna Grass is a tough low maintenance critter that grows to a rounded clump of approximately 30cm x 30cm. This form of confertifolia is native to Queensland''s Sunshine Coast, where weather conditions vary from hot, wet, humid summers to cold frosty winters. Echidna Grass once established in ground is not only drought tolerant but will also handle the humid conditions not normally suited to drought tolerant plants. Hardy and versatile to most soil types, Echidna Grass performs best in full sun or part shade. Fertilise these pets quarterly as the seasons change with 3-4 month native slow release fertiliser; the occasional prune will also enhance the Echidna Grass shape. Echidna Grass us ideal for rockeries, borders, plantings en masse, or as a pet echidna in a pot on the front patio.
