Strappy Leaf Plants
KATRINUS DELUXE™ Lomandra is a compact plant with an abundance of large flower clusters
Lomandra longifolia 'Katrinus Deluxe' PVR
Bigger and Better Flowers
Katrinus Deluxe is the new and improved form of Katrinus. Like Katrinus, it has outsanding performance. However, Katrinus Deluxe has bigger and better flowers, a finer leaf and a more dense and compact form.
Katrinus Deluxe grows to 800mm high with a spread of 800mm. In dry climates, it grows slightly smaller, to about 600mm high. Katrinus Deluxe flowers in Spring, with and abundance of large flower clusters.
Katrinus Deluxe grows well in full sun and moderate to heavy shaded positions. It tolerates windy and salt laden windy positions and lives on natural rainfall in most of the populated areas.
For desert inland type areas, occasional watering may be required. It can tolerate raised or depressed planting areas in both clay and sandy soils. Katrinus Deluxe is probably the best Lomandra longifolia at coping with periodic wet feet, although it can not handle permanent wet feet.
Watering is needed to keep the plant healthy for the first 8 to 13 weeks. After this, irrigation is optional, other than particularly dry inland regions and Perth, or in very extreme times of drought.
Trimming is rarely required, but if needed, trim the plant 20cm above the ground. Avoid trimming Katrinus Deluxe in drought conditions, or in the middle of summer. Fertiliser is rarely required, but in ornamental gardens if a darker green colour is desired, fertilise with any good balanced 8 to 9 month slow release fertiliser, preferably in Spring or Autumn.
Katrinus Deluxe is ideal for specimen planting or mass planting in gardens, roadsides, golf courses, factories, offices, and most types of residential and commercial planting.
Ideal for patio pot plants and planter boxes. Katrinus Deluxe is a good companion plant with Cassa Blue, Little Rev, Little Jess, Breeze, Revelation, or Nyalla.
