Dianella tasmanica ‘Emerald Arch’ Native Flax

Dianella Emerald Arch has attractive arching leaves that are quite broad and a nice mid green colour. A tough, low maintenance plant for borders, pots or as an accent plant. A good cooler climate plant for southern states, in warmer areas it is best in part shade, but not good in humid climates. Cut back any untidy leaves if necessary.
