Little Rev™ Dianella revoluta

Description: Little Rev™ Dianella is providing landscape architects & designers, councils & landscapers with a plant with excellent appearance and a unique look, with its brilliant blue upright foliage. This is a very hardy landscape gardening plant that will require little maintenance once established. Little Rev™ Dianella will change the way we think of Dianella revoluta forever. For those unfamiliar with the Little Rev™ plant think of it as a compact dwarf ‘blue’ Phormium, but only tougher. Dianella’s are Flaxes after all, as are Phormiums.

Size: 30 – 40cm high x 30 – 40 cm wide.

Planting Density: 6-10 plants per m², 3-5 plants per linear metre.

Uses: Commercial and residential modern landscapes.

Position: Full sun to moderate shade. Tolerates drought and frost. Suits moderate heavy to free draining soils, avoid very poor soils. Little Rev™ Dianella performs better in raised or flat landscapes, not recommended for depressed areas.

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 or mulch level. If required use slow release fertiliser in spring. Every 3-5 years cut back to 1/3 the height (will look better with pruning every 3 years, this depends on your requirements). Do not excessively irrigate.
