Streetscape is the result of breeding by NuFlora to develop an interspecific Dianella hybrid combining the best attributes of a tropic Daintree species with a temperate species.
Kay Murray, landscape architect with Shoalhaven City Council, says: “I am really impressed with Streetscape because it hasn’t crashed like other varieties we planted in the past. This summer we had so many rainy, cloudy days, and the humidity was high, but Streetscape has been great for us.”
When the entrance to the town of Nowra was listed for re-dressing in spring 2010, Kay decided to plant Dianella Streetscape and Gazania Dynamo.
Swathes of Dianella Streetscape were planted and framed by Gazania Dynamo in the roundabouts and through median strips. Eighteen months later this is how they look.
The benefits of Streetscape include its high visibility for traffic – it is compact. Also, hybrid vigour - it has strong roots that grow at twice the speed of some Dianella species. And with a healthy and tidy appearance, it develops a beautiful plume of leaves and does not invade neighbouring plants.
