Dianella Tasmanica "Tasman Flax Lily" A hardy evergreen perennial with arching strap like leaves that can reach up to 1.2m high. During Spring through Summer it bears clusters of star shaped, bright blue to purple flowers followed by glossy, deep blue berries.
Prefers a sunny to semi shade position and once established is frost and drought tolerant.
Ideal for rockeries, informal hedge, mass planting or decorative pot.
Planting: Cultivate soil before planting. Dig hole twice the width of the container. Remove plant from container and place into the hole so that soil level is the same as the surrounding ground. Fill hole firmly and water in even if the soil is moist.
Care: Always ensure regular watering is provided for your new plants. The plants may need watering for around 12 weeks or until they are established depending on time of year and weather conditions once planted.
Good mulching will assist to reduce weeds and maintain moisture levels. Maintain fresh growth, shape and promote dense habit by pruning after main flowering time. Feed in early Spring with a low phosphorus fertiliser.
Using tubestock is a great advantage for planting in your garden as they will establish quickly with the appropriate care.
Plants are supplied as tubestock in 42mm wide pots. Your plant will be established in its pot and ready to plant out.
