Dianella tasmanica Destiny ['TAS100'] PP19,338 (Destiny Flax Lily) - A 14 inch tall variegated form of the Tasman Flax Lily that is grown for its compact form and bold white-striped gray-green leaves. Inflorescence and flower development has not yet been observed on this selection but the species has small flowers that appear in mid spring that have pale violet sepals with white striped green petals and are followed by attractive dark blue berries. Best in light shade but will take full coastal sun and can take exposed windy locations in clay or sandy soils that are fairly well drained. Give regular to occasional water - the species is often listed as drought tolerant but cannot withstand prolonged dry southern California summers without some irrigation. This selection is noted as among the more frost hardier ones and is listed as being able to handle 20 degrees F without damage. Remove dead leaves as required or cut back every year or two. Should prove a nice plant for mass plantings, an accent in the garden or as a potted plant. This plant was discovered as a mutation from a unnamed bred Dianella tasmanica cultivar by Todd Layt of Ozbreed in 2005 and received U.S. Plant Patent 19,338 in 2008. It is marketed in the U.S. by Dig Plant Company.
