Dianella revoluta Baby Bliss ['DTN03'] PP18883 (Baby Bliss Flax Lily) - A tight clumping rhizomatous evergreen perennial with uniform fans of 1 inch wide blue-green foliage to 12 to 18 inches tall. In spring and late summer appear the pale violet flowers on slender stems above the foliage that are followed by small green berries. This versatile and easy-to-care-for selection is great for a mass planting in the foreground of a border planting or as a small accent plant in the ground or a pot. Plant in full sun to light shade in most any well-draining soil and irrigate regularly to only occasionally once established. Trials have indicated that this plant tolerates high inland temperatures and winter temperatures to 20F. Can be planted near the beach as it also tolerates salt spray. This selection comes from Australian plant breeder Todd Layt who selected it as a seedling selection of Dianella revoluta 'DR4000' in 1996 at Clarendon, New South Wales, Australia. Baby Bliss differed from its parent plant by having denser and shorter more glaucous foliage. The plant was introduced in the United States by VersaScapes of Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina and is has a US Plant Patent pending.  The information on this webpage is based on research conducted about this plant in our nursery library, from online sources, as well as from observations made of it as it grows in the nursery in containers, in the nursery's garden and in other gardens where we have observed it growing. We will also incorporate 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 Baby Bliss ['DTN03'] PP18,883.
