Product Overview

Lomandra longifolia 'Breeze'
Fine, strappy foliage sways gently in the wind for a stunning effect; subtle flowers are honey scented; adaptable to dry sites as well as moist; great for containers or as a groundcover

Breeze Dwarf Mat Rush is an herbaceous evergreen perennial grass with a shapely form and gracefully arching stems. It brings an extremely fine and delicate texture to the garden composition and should be used to full effect.

This is a relatively low maintenance plant, and is best cleaned up in early spring before it resumes active growth for the season. It has no significant negative characteristics.

Breeze Dwarf Mat Rush is recommended for the following landscape applications:

  • Mass Planting
  • Border Edging
  • General Garden Use
  • Groundcover
  • Container Planting

Features

Breeze Dwarf Mat Rush's attractive grassy leaves remain emerald green in color throughout the year. It features subtle spikes of lightly-scented yellow flowers rising above the foliage from late spring to early summer. The fruit is not ornamentally significant.

Planting & Growing

Breeze Dwarf Mat Rush will grow to be about 3 feet tall at maturity extending to 4 feet tall with the flowers, with a spread of 4 feet. Its foliage tends to remain dense right to the ground, not requiring facer plants in front. It grows at a medium rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 10 years.

This plant does best in full sun to partial shade. It is very adaptable to both dry and moist growing conditions, but will not tolerate any standing water. It is considered to be drought-tolerant, and thus makes an ideal choice for a low-water garden or xeriscape application. It is not particular as to soil type or pH, and is able to handle environmental salt. It is somewhat tolerant of urban pollution. This is a selected variety of a species not originally from North America. It can be propagated by division; however, as a cultivated variety, be aware that it may be subject to certain restrictions or prohibitions on propagation.

Breeze Dwarf Mat Rush is a fine choice for the garden, but it is also a good selection for planting in outdoor pots and containers. Because of its height, it is often used as a 'thriller' in the 'spiller-thriller-filler' container combination; plant it near the center of the pot, surrounded by smaller plants and those that spill over the edges. It is even sizeable enough that it can be grown alone in a suitable container. Note that when growing plants in outdoor containers and baskets, they may require more frequent waterings than they would in the yard or garden.
