— Lomandra hystrix ‘LHBYF’ Katie Belles™  PPAF —

Katie Belles is a very showy Lomandra with bright green, strappy foliage and big, fragrant yellow flower spikes in spring and summer.  Like all Lomandra, this plant is drought tolerant, cold hardy, and shade tolerant.  However, unlike some Lomandra, Katie Belles can be planted in heavy soils and is proving to be tolerant of wet feet. Great as an accent or in mass.  Katie Belles generally will grow to a maximum height of 5 feet in general conditions, but in well maintained, fertilized and irrigated areas it can grow to a height of 6 ft. Zone 8 – 11 (evergreen 9a and warmer in normal winters).
