Dwarf Mat Rush (Lomandra longifolia, 1 year old)

 

Specimen Grasses

The following list of plants are an amazingly hardy lot. They were moved several times in our trial, from one demonstration plot to another. They all flowered and grew with great vigor, even though some of them are not native to Mediterranean climate zones. Trimming dead flower heads is the only recommended trimming for these plants.
