Lime Tuff is a trade name for a select form of Lomandra confertifloia subsp. pallida. Lime Tuff has long arching lime green foliage which remains very clean and tidy. It is evergreen in all kinds of climates from the coast to inland. It is very frost hardy and survives coast summer humidity very well. While not completely Phytophthora resistant like Shara and Evergreen Baby it is still hardier then other Lomandra confertifolia varieties.
700 to 900 mm tall X 600 to 800 mm wide.
From late winter through to spring with scented flowers borne among the foliage.
Lime Tuff prefers full sun and up to 50% shade. In coastal aspects it will remain neat when planted in protected positions. Be careful not to plant it in depressed garden contours that remain wet for long periods of time. It is best suited to raised or mounted garden beds.
A wide range, loam, clay loam & free draining clay. Avoid planting in poorly drained soils.
Trim back foliage 1/3 to half every 3 to 5 years, if needed. Use a slow release fertilizer after trimming to encourage fresh re-growth.
