— Dianella caerulea ‘DCNCO’ Becca™ PP18,505

One of the earliest improved selections of Dianella caerulea, Becca was selected because it was absent of the tall canes normally found with Dianella caerulea.  So, this plant is just as tough and drought tolerant as common D. caerulea but much tidier and more compact which makes it ideal for commercial and highway plantings.  Becca has weeping foliage with a clumping habit, slowly spreading by rhizomes, and can reach a height of 24 to 30 inches.  This variety seems to do well with or without irrigation and will remain evergreen to temps down to the mid to low twenties (depending on the duration of the cold, frost, etc). Best when planted in full sun with little to moderate irrigation.  Perennial USDA Zone 8-11(evergreen 9a and warmer in normal winters).
