Lomandra confertifolia Lime Mist ['Mislimra'] PPAF (Leading™ Lime Mist Lomandra) – A small evergreen grass-like plant to 1-2 feet tall by as wide with very fine light green leaves that arch over gracefully, giving the plant an attractive airy quality. In spring through summer appear the small fragrant light-yellow flowers that are held nearly hidden down in 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 15°F 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 was a seedling selection made by Ian Shimmen of Mount Evelyn, Victoria, Australia and was registered and accepted as a protected plant by Plant Breeders Rights in Australia in January 2020. We received this plant with the breeder's code name 'LCP1020' in July 2020 with a trial of 5 other Lomandra from Star Roses and Plants (Ball Horticulture) with the proposed marking name 'Misty Green'. It did well in our trials with the decision that it be being released with the cultivar name 'Mislimra' and the marketing name Leading™ Lime Mist. Under this name we are told it has a US Plant Patent applied for. This plant performed well in our trials in 1 gallon containers and was selected as being unique with the finest texture foliage of any Lomandra cultivar that we have ever grown. As we learn more about how this plant performs in the landscape we will add this information. The other plant selected from these trials was Lomandra confertifolia Leading™ Lime Tight ['Limtigra']

This information about Lomandra confertifolia Lime Mist ['Mislimra'] PPAF displayed is based on research conducted in our horticultural library and from reliable online resources.
