Aranda™ Dianella is a very compact plant with deep blue flowers

Aranda™ Dianella caerulea 'DC150' PBR

Aranda™ Dianella  is a great little green Dianella caerulea. It flowers well, and is super tough. If you need a small Dianella for borders or planted close together as a low ground cover, Aranda™ Dianella  fits the bill perfectly.  It is great for humid areas, and did well in recent roof top garden trials.

Like all Dianella it prefers reasonable nutrients, so if the soil is poor, a slow release application of 8 to 9 month slow release fertiliser is essential. Aranda™ Dianella works well in colder regions like Victoria, but it is very much at home in Humid Queensland.

If Aranda™ Dianella starts to get a little untidy, just cut it back hard like this in spring or Autumn, leaving a few leaves out the side to help it reshoot. No other super compact Dianella caerulea is as tough or as beautiful as Aranda™ Dianella.
