Tanika Lomandra has been performing in landscapes across Australia for over a decade. An evergreen improved compact fine leaf form, this low maintenance plant is perfect for landscape professionals and gardeners alike. Small yellow flowers from April to October, Tanika Lomandra is also soft to touch so kids will enjoy this plant as well.
Tanika Lomandra is ideal for drought tolerance on slopes and dryland areas. Not recommended for low lying areas Sydney and north due to the increase of phytophthora in the landscape. Shara™ and Evergreen Baby™ Lomandra are phytophthora resistant alternatives for these situations.
Position: Full sun to moderate shade. Tolerates frost and drought. Suits sandy, sandy loam to clay soils. Avoid wet feet.
Care: Water as required for 8-13 weeks until established. Plant in a well-mulched garden (chunky mulch is recommended). Ensure the crown or base of the plant is not below the soil or mulch level. If required use slow-release fertiliser in spring. Every 3-10 years cut back 15cm above the ground if required (will look better with pruning every 3 years, this depends on your requirements).
