Lomandra hystrix Lucky Stripe 'LMV200' PP26,418 (Lucky Stripe Mat Rush) This clump-forming grass-like plant is one of the most beautiful of the Lomandra. It grows to 3 feet tall by as wide with gray-green leaves with white longitudinal stripes that are at first erect and then cascade gracefully over. In spring into summer this plant produces pale greenish-yellow branched inflorescence with spiny bracts and small fragrant male flowers. The clumps spread slowly by short (1 inch rhizomes) and it has a large fibrous root structure. Plant in full sun to moderate shade. It is fairly drought tolerant once established but can also tolerate regular irrigation. This variegated plant is a selection made from seedlings grown in 2005 from open-pollinated Lomandra hystrix by Russell Costin at a Limpinwood Gardens Nursery in New South Wales Australia and it is being marketed in the US by Ozbreed Plants. We began trialing this beautiful plant in 2016 and though it has not proven to be stable in micropropagation (tissue culture), this beautiful plant is steadily being propagated by traditional methods in hope that it will soon be readily available. We hope to have it for sale by 2020!  The information on this page is based on research conducted in our nursery library and from online sources as well as from observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in the nursery's garden and in other gardens that we have observed it in. We also will incorporate comments received from others and always appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have additional information, particularly if this information is contrary to what we have written or includes additional cultural tips that might aid others in growing Lomandra Lucky Stripe 'LMV200' PP26418.
