Black Anthered Flax-Lily Berries

Fruit of the Black Anthered Flax Lily

In October of last year, I posted photographs of a Dianella (the  Black Anthered Flax-lily).  After the flowers finish,  berries form on the plant.  These are strikingly beautiful and much more noticeable than the flowers.

    1. Thank you. I was looking for this plant yesterday, and of course all of the flowers and berries are gone. The long strappy leaves of the flax-lily plants are right alongside the Xanthorrhoea, and the landscape in this corner appears to be eucalypt trees with an under-story of grass-like plants. I can’t wait for Spring when they all explode into fabulously sculptural flowers and berries again. Lisa
