Lucia™ Dianella is a low growing plant with excellent spread
Lucia™ is a spreading form of Dianella caerulea. So if you need a drought tolerant plant that gets thick and outcompetes weeds well, Lucia™ Dianella is it. It makes a wonderful roadside plant, or erosion control plant, and its masses of mulberry coloured flowers make it great for any garden.
It is very humidity tolerant, yet can cope with frosts down to Minus 7 degrees Celcius. It can tolerate a wide array of soil types, but performs better in soils of at least reasonable quality. In general soils it will grow to a smaller height (just under knee high) but in really good soils it will reach 50 to 60 cm high. It’s a great plant for coastal windy areas, and also for hot dry or humid inland areas. Lucia™ Dianella is just a no fuss, easy care reliable plant.
