    How it works

    NSW, ACT, VIC, TAS, SA & WA.

    Full sun to heavy shade. Tolerates drought and frost. Emerald Arch® Dianella suits well drained soils to clay soils.

    Avoid very poor soils. For Sydney and north, light shade to heavy shade only (can use in full sun if near the coast).

    Care Instructions

    Water as required for 8-13 weeks until established. Plant in a well mulched garden (chunky mulch is recommended).

    Ensure crown or base of plant is not below soil. Use slow release fertiliser in spring. Trim older leaves as required and cut back halfway every 3-7 years (will look better with pruning every 3 years, this depends on your requirements).
