Dianella tasmanica Wyeena ['TAS300'] PP22,196 (Wyeena Flax Lily) - A 30 to 36 inch tall variegated form of the Tasman Flax Lily that was selected for its medium-tall plant height, broad leaf blade and the stability and uniformity of its bold white-striped gray-green variegated 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. Dianella tasmanica is among the more frost hardier of the Dianella and this cultivar 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 in the foreground behind other lower plants or as an accent in the garden or as a potted plant. This plant was a seedling selection discovered by Kahn Franke in 1998 at a Wyeena Nursery in Smiths Gully, Victoria, Australia. It was filed for Australian Plant Breeders Rights in March 2007 and received U.S. Plant Patent 22,196 in October 2011. It is marketed in the U.S. by Dig Plant Company.
