This plant is part of a series bred by Joseph Murray of Longview Plant Research that also includes a gray plant similar to Seascape and a unique bronze cultivar, but olive green one definitely the strongest grower. We first received plants of the Highlight Series in May 2017 through a trial with PlantHaven.  The information provided on this page is based on the research we have conducted about this plant in our nursery library, from what we have found about it on reliable online sources, as well as from observations of our nursery crops of this plant as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens. We also will incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Lomandra confertifolia rubiginosa Olive Green ['Losgr-1'].
