Lomandra is a beautiful, fresh green grass that works beautifully well in an urban garden. It stays neat and tidy, holds great fresh green colouring year-round, and is tough. There is an array of varieties, but the most popular ones are:

Nyalla - A blue-green foliage colour, a very soft weeping foliage form getting to a height of 90cms
