Dianella Varieties

Dianella cultivars have been one of the fastest growing plant groups in horticulture, with many breeders introducing forms they believe are better than others.

Over the years Bluedale has featured many cultivars of Dianella which we believed, after we conducted our own testing, to be worthy of recommendation. Sadly some of these varieties failed when used in the wider landscape, while others required specific growing conditions to thrive. The Dianella listed here are varieties for which we have received feed back from our customers telling us they have worked for them. Each of the featured Dianella is vastly different from each other in habit and form and each has its own application and specific cultural needs. We suggest particular care be given to their recommended aspect, watering and maintenance requirements and the application recommendations for each.

Some designers have moved away from using Dianella cultivars because they have at times have been unreliable; we still believe they are worth using in the landscape as they offer choice that other plants don’t. We always welcome comments from Landscapers and Designers, so if you have suggestions of a great plant or have had success with a particular type of Dianella we would love to hear from you.
