Dianella ensifolia

Dianella ensifolia

Architectural & tropically sexy, this rare, lust-worthy Dianella looks like an evergreen, clumping bamboo. Quick-growing to 4’-6’ tall & 3’ across, with cane-like stems topped by small fans of bamboo-like foliage, it’s lovely & made much more interesting by the large & luscious, rich, purple berries that happily appear year-round in temperate climates like ours – highly unusual for this genus. A terrific, EASY, interesting & well-behaved specimen/accent for a shady garden, side yard or large container. Hardy to 15° F.
