Full sun-light shade; low water. A distinctive, compact, soft blue, strap-leafed perennial from Australia. Slow growing clump to 18-24in. tall and wide. In late winter into spring and sometimes on to summer appear yellow-throated dark blue flowers that rise in a delicate inflorescence about 1ft above the foliage and are followed by large lilac-blue colored fruit. Grows well in sandy soils and reportedly tolerates heavy clay if planted on a slope or mound to insure adequate drainage. Great as an accent plant or for a mass planting.
