Author's notes

Leaves were 'sticky', likely the result of tiny downwards facing barbs. Leaves felt like they had a keel, or were V-shape. Leaves also distinctly 2-tone and appear striped down the length of the leaf; the edge 'stripes' being more of a milky blue-green colour and the centre green. At first I thought it was Dianella because of the dead bit (photo 5). Or maybe it is two separate species with similar leaves.
