Blue Flax Lily

Dianella caerulea, or blue flax lily, is the pretty blue flower that I have used as the background image on this blog.  After flowering it makes these deep blue berries which are beginning to pop up around the block.  I believe they are edible but I'd rather they make seeds and more flowers.

  1. There is some sort of landscape gardening plant that is in favour down here at the moment (for a few years, I guess) which has a blue berry like this. I guess it not to be the same plant. Shall go and look for a photo. I know there are some at the Redfern entrance to the University of Sydney.
