REVELATION Dianella revoluta ‘DRG04’ PBR
Clean Foliage Reliable Dianella
Revelation is a medium sized Dianella revoluta which has unique colour tones to the foliage with one side of the leaf being blue and the other side being green, giving it a great foliage contrast. Revelation puts on a terrific show with an abundance of beautiful blue flowers from mid spring through to early summer. This is followed by purple edible berries.
Revelation would have to be the best performing Dianella revoluta available on the market today. It is best suited to ACT, VIC, TAS, SA, WA and from Sydney South in NSW. One of the best characteristics of Revelation is that it will keep very clean foliage and it has a very strong growth habit. Revelation will spread slightly over time, making it invaluable for areas that need a bit of erosion control, as its large rhizomes stabilise the soil.
Revelation grows well in full sun and moderately shaded positions. It tolerates windy and salt laden windy positions and is very drought and frost tolerant.
Revelation does well in both raised and depressed areas, in both clay and sandy soils and it can tolerate wet feet better than other Dianella revoluta varieties especially in more humid climates, such as Sydney. It stood up to the recent wet in Melbourne and Adelaide much better than other revoluta types. It is not recommended for use in Queensland.
Revelation is ideal for specimen planting or mass planting in gardens, roadsides, golf courses, factories, offices, and most types of residential and commercial planting. It is a good understory plant in sparse tree plantings. Revelation is excellent for along paths and roads, as the plant will spread slowly to the edge of the planting area. When planted at 6 per square metre, Revelation is great at out competing weeds. If Revelation ever needs trimming it responds very well to being cut back hard at the base of the plant in autumn or late winter.
On a recent trip throughout southern NSW, VIC and SA looking at various landscape projects it was clear to see how well Revelation had been performing through the wet and the dry conditions with very little or no maintenance. Revelation is a stand out performer in the landscape and with its architectural strap like foliage it is certainly one plant to keep an eye out for.
