Dianella caerulea 'Casitas Springs' (Paroo Lily) - An evergreen perennial from Australia. Dianella caerulea is a highly variable species and this gray form is a wonderful selection. Clumping plant of erect strap-like leaves to about 24 to 28 inches tall and clumping to 2 to 4 feet wide. A small evergreen, tufting perennial with narrow strap-like leaves, compressed into flat fans, forming spreading patches. Flowers and fruit appear over summer, the star-shaped flowers vary in color between light and dark blue followed by attractive translucent purple-cobalt fruit which releases an indigo stain when squeezed. Keep well watered and mulched. Hardy to 20-25 F and long-lived once established. Grows best in full sun and needs a well-drained soil. Perfect for use in rock gardens are as a specimen container plant and for an impressive display plant in masse. We received this plant initially from Jo O'Connell.  Information displayed on this page is based on the research conducted about this plant in our library and from reliable online resources. We also note those observations we have made of this plant as it is growing in the nursery's garden and in other gardens, as well how it has performed in the crops out in our nursery field. We will also incorporate comments we receive from others, and welcome to hear from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if they have knowledge of cultural information we do not mention that would aid others in growing Dianella caerulea 'Casitas Springs'.
