  • Dianella ensifolia

    The DESIGN EDGE® series of grasses are well suited to landscape projects. Their ability to tolerate dry conditions and their heat and cold hardiness make them a reliable performer.

    Year round colour

    Dianella ensifolia exhibits a refreshingly cool appearance of silvery green and creamy white striped strappy leaves. Forming a dense clump this variety will provide beautiful colour and from variation amidst dark green.

    How to plant

    Plant 30 cm apart to create a solid swathe of foliage with 1 – 2 years, or further apart at 50 cm if you want to keep open space between each plant. It prefers sun or part-shade and a moderately fertile, humus-rich, well-drained, neutral to acidic soil. Protect from frost. Climate Zones: 1 to 4

    Botanically speaking

    In its native habitat, Dianella ensifolia exists in a broad ecological range of climate and land elevation, from seashores, grasslands, and open scrubs to alpine and open lowland forests between sea level and 1600 m. It spreads via underground rhizomes and flowers from late spring.
