Dianella ensifolia, commonly known as the Coastal Flax Lily or Swordleaf Flax Lily, is a perennial herbaceous plant. The Dianella ensifolia plant typically grows up to 4 to 6 feet in height and 3 feet wide. It features long, strap-like leaves that are dark green or variegated in color. The leaves have a distinctive sword-like shape, hence the species name "ensifolia," which means 'sword-leaved' in Latin. The plant's fibrous leaves were often used for weaving baskets, mats, or even fishing nets. The plant produces delicate blue or purple flowers on erect stems during late spring and summer. These flowers are followed by small blue or purple berries that appear in clusters. The berries are not only visually appealing but also serve as a food source for birds and other wildlife. Dianella ensifolia is well-adapted to coastal environments and can tolerate salt spray, making it an ideal choice for seaside gardens or landscaping projects. It likes to be in the shade or in the morning sun. Hardiness zones 8-11

    Not sure if this is the correct place to ask, but you seem to be knowledgable about the flowering plants.

    Most likely these two plants Lily of the valley and this flowering bonsai tree may share the same chemistry.

    Which fertilizer / condition do you recommend to bloom a flowering plant more? 

    Lily of the valley typically doesn’t need any fertilizer unless you have poor soil. If your soil lacks nutrients, you can add a slow-release granular fertilizer in the spring. For Bonsai plants, there is usually specific fertilizer for those plants.

    Wow, I never realized how rich and diverse the symbolism and mythology behind anemone flowers are! Their vibrant colors, cup-shaped blossoms, and unique central cluster make them truly captivating. It’s fascinating to learn about their association with love and protection against evil.Here is more information.

    Yes, they are beautiful flowers.  The link did not have anything to do with anemone flowers, so we did not include it.
