Dianella tasmanica 'Yellow Stripe' (Flax lily) - This slowly-spreading plant is a yellow variegated form of the Tasman Flax Lily. It grows to 1 to 2 feet tall with long arching showy yellow striped leaves with the added benefit of small violet blue flowers in mid spring and attractive dark blue berries. Plant in a well-drained soil. Best in light shade or part sun but will take full coastal sun with regular irrigation. It is hardy to about 25 degrees F. This plant is not as strong a grower as the green or the white variegated Dianella tasmanica.  This description is based on research and observations of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in our nursery garden and in other gardens that we visit. We also incorporate comments received and appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have any additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Dianella tasmanica 'Yellow Stripe'.
