Lomandra confertifolia 'Seascape' PP 20,010 (Seascape Mat Rush) - A very attractive selection of Lomandra to 1-2 feet tall by 2-3 feet wide with dark blue-gray leaves that weep gracefully back to the ground. In summer the very fragrant small yellow flowers emerge from reddish-brown buds on spikes that rise up to the top of the foliage. Flowers on this selection are all male. Plant in full sun to part shade in relatively well-drained soil and irrigate occasionally to infrequently. Hardy to moderate frost. Cut back to near the ground to renew foliage. This plant is considered to be a cultivar of Lomandra confertifolia spp. Rubiginosa, a subspecies from open forest areas near Newcastle in New South Wales south to near the border with Victoria. Though not as tough as the Lomandra longifolia cultivars it is noted for its elongated stems and channeled leaves. It was introduced in 2006 by Bournda Plants, Merimbula, Australia where it was discovered growing in their greenhouse and is being marketed in the US by Ball Horticultural. It received US Plant Patent 20,010 in May 2009. We first saw this plant at Australian Native Plants, a great nursery run by Jo O'Connell just south of us near Ojai, in 2007 and were immediately attracted by its soft gray leaves that gracefully wept over the edge of its nursery container. This form and color should make it a great plant for a planter or large pot where the foliage can arch over to hide an edge.  This description is based on our research and the observations we have made of this plant as it grows in containers at our nursery, in our own garden and in other gardens. We also appreciate receiving feedback of any kind from those who have additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Lomandra 'Seascape' PP20,010.
