Dianella plants are clump-forming, evergreen perennials with long, narrow, basal leaves. The narrow leaves are usually a mid-green color, but some species have leaves that taper to a purple or black coloration. In most species, the flowering stems are unbranched and carry 1-3 pendent, blue flowers. These flowers may be star-shaped or bell-shaped, depending on the species. The fruit consists of usually one or two brown, ovoid capsules containing numerous small white seeds.


Dianella plants are commonly found in degraded grasslands, open forests, and disturbed locations in Australia, New Zealand, New Caledonia, and the southwest Pacific region. The habitats are characterized by warm temperatures, moist soils, and full or partial sun conditions.


Dianella plants are often grown as ornamentals, in shrub borders, and along walkways and garden beds. The evergreen foliage provides year-round interest, and the pendent flowers are very attractive. In addition, some species are used as soil stabilizers to prevent erosion on slopes, and the stiff leaves of some species are used in basket and hat weaving. The nectar of some species is favored by birds, including the silver-eyes, honeyeaters, and tanagers.
