It is an ideal choice to create a tropical feel in a landscape, using a very cold hardy plant.

Size: 50cm high x 50cm wide, flowers up to 1m.

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

Uses: A hardy versatile plant whose broad arching leaves create a tropical feel in the garden situation. Ideal as a foliage plant, mass planting, accent gardens, and low water requirement situations.

Position: Grows well in most parts of New Zealand, including regions that get to minus 10 degrees. Tolerates heavy shade to full sun.

Care: Water as required for 8-13 weeks until established. Plant in a well mulched garden (chunky mulch is recommended). In cool to temperate zones simply remove older leaves annually, use a fungicide if required. When planting, ensure Emerald Arch™ Dianella is planted no deeper than existing soil level to prevent covering the crown of the plant. Do not cover base of the plant with mulch or soil.
