Dig into the details


The Flax Lily (Dianella tasmanica) is a versatile and attractive perennial plant native to Australia and Tasmania. Known for its striking foliage, delicate flowers, and colorful berries, this hardy plant is an excellent choice for various garden styles, including borders, mass plantings, and container gardens.

The Overall Plant

Flax Lily is a clump-forming, evergreen perennial that typically grows 1-3 feet tall and 1-3 feet wide. Its long, strap-like leaves and fountain-like growth habit create an attractive, grass-like appearance that adds texture and movement to the garden. Flax Lily is well-suited to a range of growing conditions, thriving in both full sun and partial shade. It is also tolerant of various soil types and moisture levels, making it a low-maintenance option for many landscapes.

Adaptable to USDA hardiness zones 8-10, Flax Lily is relatively cold hardy and can withstand temperatures down to 15°F. This plant is also drought-tolerant once established, making it an excellent choice for water-wise gardens or regions with hot, dry summers.

The Foliage

One of the standout features of the Flax Lily is its attractive foliage. The long, strap-like leaves can vary in color from deep green to variegated green and white or green and yellow, depending on the cultivar. The arching leaves create a graceful, fountain-like appearance that adds texture and visual interest to the garden. The variegated varieties of Flax Lily, in particular, offer an eye-catching contrast to other plants in the landscape, making them excellent options for brightening up shaded areas.

The Flowers

Flax Lily produces delicate, star-shaped flowers that appear on slender, branched stems above the foliage in late spring to early summer. The flowers are usually pale blue or violet and are followed by small, attractive berries. The blooms add a touch of elegance to the plant's overall appearance and provide a lovely contrast to the bold foliage.

The Fruit

Following the flowering period, Flax Lily produces small, round berries that can range in color from bright blue to deep purple, depending on the cultivar. The fruit not only adds visual interest to the plant but also serves as a food source for various birds and other wildlife. While the berries are not considered edible for humans, they do contribute to the overall appeal and ecological value of the Flax Lily.
