Dianella tasmanica 'Tasred'
A dense and tidy Dianella with beautiful wide, strappy leaves and a Phormium-like habit. In cold climates the base will often turn red and the foliage may turn from green to green plus a reddish tinge. Large purple berries appear after flowering in Spring and Summer. Good for mass plantings in low water gardens (such as streetscapes) in Japanese style Gardens and for accent planting. Will grow in full sun to heavy shade and tolerates frost and heat but dislikes heavy humidity. Prefers a sandy, sandy loam or clay soil. Avoid poor soils. Appreciates a chunky mulch but ensure that crown/plant base is above soil/mulch levels. Trim older leaves as required and cut back half-way every 3-7 years.
