Dianella Revelation is medium sized with blue green foliage and small blue flowers from October to November. Recent rains have caused disease in most Dianella revoluta types, but Revelation® Dianella has performed best in these conditions as it handles periodic wet feet much better. It spreads slightly and has good erosion control capabilities strengthening the soil 135% (2007 Paananen, Layt; Study). Grows 50 cm H x 50 cm W. Best used for mass plantings, foliage or grassy gardens, commercial and residential sites.

Cultural Notes: Prefers Full sun to part shade. Tolerates drought and frost. Revelation suits sandy, sandy loam and clay soil types. Avoid very poor soils. For raised, flat and depressed areas. Care: Water as required for 8-13 weeks until established. Plant in a well mulched garden (chunky mulch is recommended). Ensure crown or base of plant is not below soil or mulch level. If required use slow release fertiliser in spring. Every 3-5 years cut back 15cm above the ground if required (will look better with pruning every 3 years, this depends on your requirements). Where it works: NSW, ACT, VIC, SA, WA, TAS & QLD (only for non humid regions like Toowoomba with free draining soil.)
