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
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.
HISTORY
Lore In New Zealand, the berries of Dianella are considered bush food by indigenous cultures.
