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.  The information on this page is based on research conducted about this plant in the San Marcos Growers library, from online sources, and from observations made of the crops growing in our nursery, plants in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens where we may have observed it. We also have incorporated comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from those who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Dianella tasmanica 'Yellow Stripe'.
