Foliage First Plants

The United Kingdom has become a warmer and drier region with hotter summers, yet this is coupled with wet, cold winters. These strappy leaf plants are now the choice plant for these conditions.


Lomandra filiformis 'LMF500' CPVR

Savanna Blue has stunning form and foliage. It creates great contrasting colours with many landscape gardening plants due to its unique blue look.

Savanna Blue grows to 30cm high and will perform well in mass planted areas and specimen gardens.

Areas that suit Savanna Blue would include most regions of the UK, except in very cold areas where it may need sheltered positions or over wintering.

Savanna Blue is suitable for a wide variety of soil conditions, its low height, good drought tolerance and the fact that it rarely if ever needs trimming makes it a landscaping winner.

A compact highly ornamental, blue form of the tough Lomandra filiformis. It's striking blue foliage creates superb colour and texture contrast throughout the garden. Grows to approximately 30cm tall by 30cm wide.

Ideal for mass planting in garden beds and borders. Planted on mass it provides an excellent ground cover. Its blue foliage contrasts nicely against green, yellow and red tones from other landscape gardening plants. An ideal plant for smaller modern gardens. A great alternative to Festuca glauca.
