Dianella ‘Splice’ is a form selected for it striking new pink foliage maturing to a unique tallow and lime variegation that will brighten up any corner of the garden! The foliage of ‘Splice’ is a real breakthrough for Dianellas, which are typically more grey/green. ‘Splice' is a slow spreading variety that grows in clumps. It is perfect for narrow spaces such as along the side of the house, is ideal for native style gardens and looks fantastic when planted up in containers. The ‘tough as nails’ nature of this variety also makes it superb for planting under existing trees where other plants find it difficult to establish. ‘Splice' is extremely hardy - drought tolerant, shade tolerant and frost tolerant. Albeit tough, the plant looks best when periodically watered through periods of dryness. ‘Splice’ was selected by respected plant breeders Native Plant Wholesalers in Mount Gambier, Australia.

Best grown in fertile well drained soil in full sun to part shade. No pruning generally required other than to tidy (such as spent flower stems). Dry tolerant although regular watering should be given during dry periods in the first year of planting, to establish a healthy root system. The clumps will then become mostly self reliant requiring little attention.

• Planting en masse - 30cm apart • Growing in containers • Softening the edge of driveways and other hard surfaces • Both native and non native gardens • Coastal locations
