Dianella tasmanica 'Blaze' is a strappy leaf perennial plant with deep purple foliage and purple flowers and berries. It is a great easy care plant for low maintenance gardens. The foliage will turn green in higher summer temperatures, which helps it to cope with heat.
'Blaze' will grow on a wide range of soils, from sandy to clay soil. It withstands heat, frost and drought once established. Keep moist while establishing. Mulching will discourage weed growth. The only maintenance required will be to remove any old or damaged foliage if needed. The plant can be cut back by a half every few years to rejuvenate.
