How do you grow them?

Growing Dianella Plants is very easy. They perform well in fertile soils. The most suitable time to add fertilizer to the plant is just before producing new spring growth. They do very well in well-drained soils. They can, however, tolerate poor soil but for better results enriching the soil is critical. After planting, frequently water them and apply mulch to retain the moisture. After they establish themselves in the ground, they become cold and drought tolerant.

Caring for Dianella plants

To keep the plant looking tidy, old, yellow and pest-infected leaves should be removed occasionally. The affected foliage is bagged up and thrown away to prevent the disease from spreading to other leaves. When adding fertilizer, you should not place the compost too close to the base of the plant to avoid burning. Fertilizer granules that land on the leaves should be washed away using a hose. To avoid congestion, clumps can be thinned and separated, especially during autumn.
