Licence to Propagate Lomandra ‘White Sands’
One of the U.K.’s leading commercial nurseries are celebrating after being granted the propagation licence for an award-winning Lomandra (March 2020).
First Variegated Lomandra
Wyevale Nurseries will be growing Lomandra ‘White Sands’, the first variegated Lomandra, which was also the Winner of Best New Novelty at Groen-Direkt Spring Fair in Holland in February.
Kyle Ross, Production Manager at the Containers Division at Wyevale Nurseries in Hereford, explained: “We are delighted to announce that we have been granted a propagation licence for Lomandra ‘White Sands’ and we are the only end product seller in the UK."
"By having a propagation licence, we are able to take production material from our own stock plants and grow it on, ensuring the integrity of the plants are true to type."
“Lomandra ‘White Sands’ delivers everything you need from a 21st Century plant. Its striking cream and green variegated leaves gently cascade, forming tall elegant domes, making it ideal for spot planting or containers."
It was bred by a collaboration between Malcolm Woolmore of KiwiFlora Ltd and Robert Harrison of Greenhills Propagation Ltd. Available in a three-litre pot from March. RRP £14.99. Ultimate size 75cm x 50cm.
