Tia® Thelionema has blue green toned strappy leaves that are denser than the common form. In spring and summer it provides a fantastic flowering display of blue purple flowers. These flowers are larger than Dianella flowers, so they can be seen from further away.
Tia looks great when planted as specimen plants, or in patches of 10 or 20 through out the garden. It contrasts nicely with green, or red toned plants. It is a good plant for along fences and paths.
