Uses: Specimen and mass plantings for commercial and residential use.

Position: Full sun and moderate to heavy shade. Tolerates drought, humidity and frost. Little Jess™ Dianella suits a wide variety of soils. Avoid very poor soils.

Care: Water as required for 8-13 weeks until established. Plant in a well mulched garden (chunky mulch is recommended). Ensure crown or base of plant is not below soil or mulch level. If required use slow release fertiliser in spring. Every 2-8 years cut back half the height (will look better with pruning every 2-3 years for gardens, 4-8 years for roadsides).
