Cath, Dave Albrecht of teh CSIRO Herbarium is doing a study on this species, we may be combining two species Dianella Longifolia and Dianella amoena (which is listed as nationally threatened). Flowering material has been a bit short this year if you could make a collection of flower and some leaf material for Dave and drop it off at teh Black Mountain Herbarium that would be great. You are covered by my collection permit.
