Pale Flax-lily (Dianella longifolia)

Pale Flax-lily (Dianella longifolia)

Pale Flax-lily is very similar to Paroo Lily in appearance with its pale to dark blue flowers (August to January), which form round blue-purple berries. Pale Flax-lily grows all

over Victoria and is found in all states of Australia; its leaves are used by many diverse Aboriginal groups for basket-making with the berries often used as a dye. Providing great habitat for small animals and attracting birds that eat its berries, it also attracts native butterflies and bees.
