|Design Ideas||Plant this perennial in naturalistic drifts for a unique illusion of dappled sunlight in gardens beneath shade trees. Ideal used as an edging or planted in masses for a bold, highly visible effect. Perfect for Asian inspired urban gardens where space is limited. Well suited for container compositions that blend foliage color under shade structures, inside walled courtyards, atriums, or sideyards between tall buildings. Great choice for problem northern exposures.|
|Companion Plants||Fringe Flower (Loropetalum); Esperanza (Tecoma); Lilyturf (Liriope); Bush Daisy (Euryops); Agapanthus (Agapanthus)|
|Care||Thrives in organically rich, well-drained soils; tolerates clay. Best with some shade in hot summer regions. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Remove spent flower stalks and old foliage as new leaves emerge. Divide if needed in early spring.|
|Lore||In New Zealand, the berries of Dianella are considered bush food by indigenous cultures.|
