Dianella brevicaulis is a popular choice for landscaping in Australian gardens. It is a hardy and attractive plant that is easy to care for and adds colour and texture to any garden. The plant has thin, strap-like leaves that are a blue-green color, and small, blue-purple flowers that bloom in spring and summer. The plant is tolerant of a range of soil types and can grow in full sun or partial shade. It can be used as a border plant, a ground cover, or in rock gardens. Its hardiness makes it a great choice for coastal gardens or areas with poor soil quality.
