  • Best performing, biggest selling Dianella tasmanica in Australia
  • Great colour contrast with changing foliage

Description: Tasred® Dianella will often get a red base in cold climates, or even change from green to green with reddish tinges at times. It has a dense tidy appearance with beautiful wide leaves and large purple berries in spring and summer, and is a great alternative to Phormium. Great erosion control capabilities strenthenging the soil 215% (2007 Paananen, Layt; Study).

Size: 45cm high x 40-50cm wide.

Uses: Mass plantings, low water gardens, Japanese style gardens and accent planting.

Position: Full sun to heavy shade. Tolerates frost and heat. Tasred® Dianella suits sandy, sandy loam and clay soils. Avoid very poor soils. For Sydney north Tasred® Dianella is suited to shaded areas only (except for climates like the Blue Mountains).

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. Trim older leaves as required and cut back halfway every 3-7 years to encourage new growth (will look better with pruning every 3 years, this depends on your requirements).

Where it works: NSW, ACT, VIC, TAS, SA, WA & QLD (only for non humid regions like Toowoomba with free draining soil.)
