Lomandra Fibre Optic

affinis cylindrica

Foliage resembling luminous green optic fibres!

Fibre Optic has quickly become a favourite with its soft foliage posing no threat to the dedicated gardener or passers by, unlike many Lomandra varieties that produce stiff foliage and long flower spikes. Fibre Optic bears small pale yellow flowers that stand out beautifully against the lime-green foliage. Only growing to about 50cm or so high, it's a well suited option for smaller, low-maintenance gardens or mass plantings in larger gardens for a more dramatic effect.
