Flax Lily (Dianelia)

  • If you’re looking for a low-maintenance plant that provides both texture and color, consider the variegated flax lily (Danella).
  • Although this drought-resistant perennial produces late-summer flowers, it is grown primarily for its variegated strappy foliage.
LIGHT
  • Although it does well when planted in shady locations, it does best when it receives full or partial sun for most of the day.
  • In fact, plants grown in the shade are more susceptible to scale, a tiny insect that attaches itself to the undersides of the flax lily’s leaves and feeds on it by sucking out the juices.
WATER
  • It requires consistently moist soil during its first growing season.
  • This helps it establish a strong, deep root system that allows it to tolerate drought conditions later in its life.
  • In its second and subsequent seasons, water it only during periods of extreme drought.
  • If other plants in the garden are experiencing drought stress, the flax lily probably is as well, so water it slowly to a depth of 10 inches.
FERTILIZER
  • The ideal time to fertilize is just before it produces new spring growth.
  • Choose a fertilizer labeled for use on azaleas and camellias, and apply it to the soil around the plant.
  • To avoid burning it, don’t place the fertilizer too near the base of the plant or allow it to drop on the foliage.
  • Use the hose to wash away any fertilizer granules that land on the leaves.
