Ideal in quantities used as edging or plant 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.

Foliage Color Variegated
Companion Plants Canna (Canna); Lilyturf (Liriope); Bush Daisy (Euryops); Agapanthus (Agapanthus); Rose (Rosa)
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.
