Common name: Flax lily
Botanical name: Dianella tasmanica     Family: Liliaceae (Lily family)

Flax Lily is an attractive foliage plant which produces sprays of lavender blue flowers with prominent brown tipped golden anthers, followed by showy deep blue fruit. The fruit is more spectacular than the beautiful flowers - stalks of shiny turquoise blue berries lasting from fall into winter create a colorful accent in the garden. Neat grass-like foliage is great for use in gardens. It is also good as a container plant. A very strong silky fibre is obtained from the leaves. The leaves are also used in making baskets.
