With long, strap-like leaves, these plants grow in a clump and are drought-tolerant. Like the larger Dianella tasmanica, this species tends to spread. The flowers are held high above the leaves and have bluish petals with contrasting black and yellow anthers in the middle. (Maybe a good plant for Richmond supporters?) After flowering the seeds form inside green berries which turn purple. Like many lilies, each flower often lasts only a few days but as there are many flowers on a stem they can be colourful for weeks.

Also known as Dianella revoluta.



Cutting off the flower stem after flowering will keep the plant looking neat.
