We’ve extensively planted Dianella Caerulea (Blue Flax-Lilly) throughout our native back garden, and in our verge gardens. It’s tough, drought hardy, and fast growing.

It also produces delicate blue flowers, which then grow into bright blue/purple berries.

I picked a good harvest of them one afternoon, supplemented by takings from our raspberry and blueberry plants.

A feast for both the eyes and mouth!
