— Dianella tasmanica ‘TR20’ Tasred™ PP18,737

This wide bladed flax lily has an arched habit and grows to approximately 18 to 24 inches tall and 12 to 18 inches wide.  Several noted characteristics make this a great plant for specimen or group plantings: in full sun, the foliage is a vivid lime color, in shade it is deep green and during winter, red pigmentations radiate up from the crown and throughout the plant giving it a maroon hue.  If the foliage isn’t enough, Tasred has a decent display of the typical flax lily flower but produces larger-than-average purple berries which adorn the plant for about a month in early summer!  Best suited to Western gardens.
