  • Billy Can 'Coolvista'™

    Billy Can® grasses are made for Aussie backyards and look great in both contemporary and eclectic garden layouts.

    Use them for garden border plantings, or as a filler in-between existing shrubs. 

    Cool grey colour

    Coolvista™ (Dianella revoluta) offers gardens a beautiful grey-green swathe of colour in a stiff upright texture. This vigorous variety quickly forms a dense clump, producing many side shoots that emerge from the ground around the plant base. In late spring many royal blue berries provide a spectacular display just above the foliage. Consider using the lovely grey-green tufts of Coolvista to edge paths, driveways and entertainment areas, or as a groundcover under trees. Coolvista also has the durability to be planted in drifts on embankments. 

    Best growing conditions

    Coolvista™ is particularly suited to climate Zone 1 with dry summers. It can be planted further northwards in Zones 2 and 4 where wet summers normally prevail but in theses wet summer Zones it may need to be pruned at the end of summer to remove old foliage. During the autumn and winter new foliage will develop. Best Climate Zones: 1 to 3.

    How to plant

    Coolvista preferes a sun to part shade location. Plant 40 cm apart.

    Co-plant with other Billy Can® varieties

    Create a beautiful foliage display by combining the blue/green tufts of Coolvista with shiney black of Black Mondo and the bright varigated foliage of Ophiopogon Stripey White.
