Plants: Species

Flax Lily Dianella tasmanica 'Variegata'

FAMILY: LILIACEAE (Lily Family)

Looking like oversized blades of grass, the variegated flax lily Dianella tasmanica 'Variegata' makes an attractive border plant. In the wild, species not affected by mutation outperform and outlive their abnormal counterparts, making variegated plants virtually nonexistent. However, in cultivation we can control and give extra care to these treasures and produce beautiful specimens to enjoy.
