Platinum Beauty Lomandra Care
Hardy in USDA Zones 8-10
For the first 2-3 months after planting water this Lomandra 2-3 time per week. Once established this plant will be water-wise and should only need to be watered once per week in times of little to no rainfall.
This plant will prefer areas that are full sun to part shade and can tolerate poor soils(clay, sandy, poor draining).
Fertilize in early spring with a balanced acidic plant fertilizer. This will help ensure future growth, as well as promote the overall well-being of your plant.
If damaged by cold or frost in winter you can trim the foliage back to 6-8 inches in late winter-early spring and allow fresh new foliage to flush in spring.
