Lomandra longifolia - Matt Rush
Family: Asparagaceae

It is perennial, rhizomatous herb found throughout eastern Australia.
The leaves are 40-80 cm long, and generally have a leaf of about 8-12 mm wide.
It grows in a variety of soil types and is frost, heat and drought tolerant.
Indigenous Australians ground the seeds for use in damper and the long, flat, fibrous leaves were used for weaving.
The base of the leaves contains water, and was chewed by those in danger of dehydration.
