Dianella tasmanica (Tasman lily)

  • Dianella tasmanica (Tasman lily)


Turquoise grass

Also known as Tasman lily or broadleaf Dianella, Dianella tasmanica is a perennial plant native to Australia and New Zealand. Still relatively little-known in Europe, it belongs to the Liliaceae family. The plant has erect, narrow leaves and clusters of small blue or purple flowers which have earned it its nickname of “turquoise grass”. Its small, azure blue flowers give way to bright blue berries brimming with charm.

This plant is appreciated for its delightful aspect and blooms that bring a pretty, colourful note to the flowerbeds of our four-star campsite Les Jardins de La Pascalinette ®. Its evergreen, upright leaves add texture and structure to every garden. The Daniella tasmanica regales us with its very original flower show throughout the year!

A pantry for our animals

In addition to its aesthetic appeal, Dianella tasmanica is great for the environment, attracting pollinators and providing food for local wildlife. Its berries are also appreciated by birds and other wild animals – and our exceptional vegetation attracts plenty of them!

Easy to maintain and fairly tolerant in terms of climate, this plant appreciates well-drained soils and can withstand the summer droughts so common in our beautiful Provence quite well.
