New Plants at Commons Bandshell Planter Box –                   

(July 9, 2022)


The Moraga Park Foundation has planted new plants at the Commons Bandshell planter box.

The new plants are known as Lomandra “Shorty” and are native to Australia.  They are hardy, drought resistance and low maintenance.  These perennials should grow 18 inches tall and wide with bright lime-greeen foliage and yellow flowers in the winter and spring.

These plants should give the bandshellstage a nicer feel throughout the year.
