The red stemmed one. Dianella are such a useful native grass for all kinds of garden situations. This one combines usefulness and beauty as broad dark green leaves emerge in a cascade from dark red stems.

It also has the distinctive blue flowers and ornamental berry fruits that you and the native birds will love. Tasmanica dianellas are good for cooler, shadier, and wetter spots compared to other Dianella species.

We love Cherry Red for its glowing red stems, taller height, tolerance of wetter soils
