  • Lomandra confertifolia rubiginosa Crackerjack

    The DESIGN EDGE® series of grasses are well suited to landscape projects. Their ability to tolerate dry conditions and their heat and cold hardiness make them a reliable performer.

    A cracker of a variety!

    Crackerjack™ exhibits a strong, but graceful presence in the landscape. Its fine leaves hide the effects of the leaf tips drying out, caused by low rainfall in summer periods. Any brown leaf tips become virtually indistinguishable at a distance so that a fresh appearance is maintained year round. New seasons growth is blue, maturing to green with age. With flowers positioned deep in the foliage it is well suited to high pedestrian areas and is child friendly, as there is little danger from getting spiked by drying flowers.

    Best growing conditions

    Crackerjack can be used in many applications from council gardens, to residential patio containers. It performs exceptionally in Zones 1 and 3 which experience dry summers. In Zones 2 and 4 which experience wet summers ensure that it is planted in free draining soils. Soils should acid to neutral in pH. Likes sunny to partly shaded positions. Very good in dry conditions and tolerates moderate frosts. Climate Zones: 1 to 4.

    How to plant

    The fine leaves of Crackerjack sway gracefully in the wind, which creates the feeling of a soft flimsy element, contrasting perfectly with hard paved surfaces. It also offers a beautiful soft texture to plantings of Urban Wild™ Succulents, as shown in the photos.
