The Dianella Caerulea is City Farm’s plant of the month
This month City Farm has “Melaleuca Salicina” going on sale with two native tubes for the price of one.
City Farm Nursery is located opposite the Community Centre on Tin Can Bay Road and is open to the public on a continual trial basis for this month of September, for plant sales on Tuesdays and Thursdays 8am-2.30pm, until we know COVID-19 is not going to be ever present in our lives.
Now that spring has sprung, our plant of the month is “Dianella Caerulea”, commonly known as Blue Flax Lily.
This plant has dainty blue flowers from spring to summer followed by edible bright blue fruit.
It is a hardy and very easy core clumping perennial plant growing up to a metre high and wide. It grows from an underground rhizome, so it can be cut back to tidy up if needed, and it will resprout.
A good plant for stabilising sand and frost and drought tolerant, this plant grows in sun to shady spots.
Also, we would like to reiterate that we are a cash only organisation.
