Breeze™ Dianella caerulea

Description: Unlike the common variety of Dianella caerulea, Breeze™ Dianella has no messy straw brown canes that often fall over. Dianella caerulea is a fantastic plant for commercial and residential landscaping. The only problem is, as it gets older it becomes untidy. The Breeze™ plant solves this problem by providing a ‘no cane’ variety, that does not have above ground canes. Breeze™ Dianella is the tidy, tough ground cover plant, that is 40% larger than little Jess™ Dianella.

Size: 60-70cm high x 60-70cm wide.

Planting Density: 4-6 plants per m², 2-3 plants per linear metre.

Uses: Mass plantings and grassy gardens.

Position: Full sun to part shade. Breeze Dianella tolerates humidity, cold and is moderately drought tolerant. Tolerates a wide variety of soils. Avoid very poor soils.

Underground rhizomes ensure excellent cold survival. Breeze™ Dianella will survive in wet and cold areas in New Zealand, with some of the foliage browning off. In these areas the plant will perenialise.

Care: Water as required for 8-13 weeks until established. Plant in a well mulched garden (chunky mulch is recommended). Ensure crown or base of plant is not below soil level. If required use slow release fertiliser in spring. Every 5-8 years cut back to 1/3 the height (will look better with pruning every 3 years, this depends on your requirements) (In colder areas yearly trimming may be required).
