Lomandra Longifolia "Tanika" Lomandra Tanika is a hardy Australian native evergreen with shiny green strap leaves and yellow flower spikes that come out in Spring. This plant is very hardy and has even been called by some as "close to indestructible." Tanika is versatile, and can be planted in a position of full sun to heavy shade. Drought tolerant. Great as a landscaping plant.
