TROPIC Cascade™ Lomandra hystrix 'LHWP'

600 mm to 800 mm tall X 600 mm to 800 mm wide, (in irrigated gardens with fertile soils Tropic Cascade may grow 20% larger than noted above). Tropic Cascade is an ornamental Lomandra hystrix with weeping lime green foliage. It is a great choice for smaller gardens as it is super tough and doesn’t get as large as the common form. Lomandra hystrix is an old favourite with landscapers and gardeners because it is very reliable in coastal gardens of northern NSW and Queensland where summer humidity can effect other Lomandra varieties. Tropic Cascade has all the toughness of the common plant made into a compact form.
H: 600mm to 800mm tall X 600mm to 800mm wide
Spring & Summer, with masses of large non spiky yellow flowers. It has a subtle perfume which is most noticeable in the morning and evening.
Tropic Cascade grow in full sun and in up to 90% shade, (while it has great shade tolerance it will flower better with more sun). It is suited to protected coastal environments and does well in inland climates where it is evergreen even in the cold of winter.
Soil Type
Suited to a wide range of soil types from sandy/clay loam to light and heavy clay soils. Being a hystrix variety is is tolerant of wet soils
although we have seen the best results in cool free draining soil profiles.
Trim the foliage by 1/3 to reduce the overall height. This can be done in spring every 2 to 3 years if necessary to keep tidy and remove spent seed heads. Fertilize with slow release
fertilizer after trimming.
