COMMERCIAL  NURSERY – NATIVE STRAPPY LEAF PLANT

Lomandra fluviatilis ‘ABU7’ – Shara™ 

Shara is a new fine leafed Lomandra with exceptional Phytophthora resistance. Shara looks like a cross between Wingarra and Tanika with its green/bluish foliage and its height halfway between the two. Shara is a great alternative to the popular Tanika in humid climates like the North Coast NSW and Queensland.

Uses: Roadside applications, commercial garden spaces public gardens and residential gardens

 

 

Dimensions: Height: 400mm- 500mm|  Width: 500mm – 600mm

Flowering: Spring & Summer with masses of yellow to cream flowers held above the foliage. Flowers are perfumed.

Aspect: Shara will grow in full sun and in up to 50% shade, it is also suited to protected coastal conditions. Shara will tolerate poorly drained soils, but not permanently wet soils. Coastal humidity isn’t a problem for this plant and it will perform well with the high summer rainfall that the N.C. and S.E. Queensland receive. Shara grows in inland climates and while it has a high drought tolerance it may need watering in extreme dry inland summers. It stays evergreen in temperatures to –5ºC. Soil type: Wide ranging; from loam, clay loam to free draining clays. Shara can tolerate short term water logging. Phytophthora resistant.

Planting rates: Mass planting: Tubes 5 to 7/m2. Pots 3 to 5/m2 | Specimen planting: Tubes 3/m2. Pots 1 to 3/m2Maintenance: Trim back foliage to 200mm above the ground every 3 to 5 years, if needed, to remove older foliage. Use a slow release fertilizer after trimming to encourage fresh re-growth.
