Dianella 'Little Russ' is compact and strappy leaved clumping perennial. A tough, drought tolerant low maintenance plant for borders, pots or as an accent plant. Has starry mauve flowers in spring, followed by attractive purple berries in summer, and mid green foliage which can be used in cut flower work. Does well on most soils, and in most climates. Drought tolerant, though extended dry spells can lead to sparse foliage. Damaged leaves can be cut back hard.
