Dianella tasmanica – Tasmanian Flax Lily (blueberry)

Dianella tasmanica – Flowers

General Information & Description: Dianella tasmanica @ Wikipedia

Other names: sometimes referred to as ‘native blueberry’.

Where: Southeast NSW, Vic. & Tas.

Planetary Correspondence: Venusian (Tellerian)

Further Information:

Aboriginal Tasmanian women used the flax in their intricate basket weaving. The berries were used to as a dye for the fibers. For more information regarding this art, please visit my previous post, Weave a Little which includes some fabulous links.
I like to leave the flowers to form the spectacular fruits, but either blooms or fruit sprays can be cut and last as floral offerings for a good amount of time before drying for use in incense.
