Lomandra confertifolia spp. rubiginosa 'Olive Green' PP32,803 (Highlight Olive Green Matt Rush) A small to midsize clumping grass-like plant that grows 18 to 24 inches tall by 2 feet tall by 2 to 3 feet wide with narrow weeping olive green colored leaves and small male cream to yellow flowers held nearly hidden among the foliage. Plant in full sun to part shade in a well-drained soil and irrigate occasionally to infrequently. Should prove hardy to moderate frost and temperatures down to 15F and useful in gardens down to USDA Zone 8. This new cultivar should prove to be useful in mass as a groundcover, an accent plant or in a container. 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 and this was originally coded as 'Losgr-1'.  The information presented on this page is based on research we have conducted about this plant in our library and from reliable online sources. We also consider observations of it growing in our nursery crops, as well as in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens we visit. We will incorporate comments that we receive from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if they include cultural information that would aid others in growing Lomandra confertifolia 'Olive Green' PP32,803.
