The buds and fruits of quite a few Dianella species cultivated in ANBG are deformed.

But why Rosemary? Dianella longifolia planted in our garden at Watson was so affected this year with phyllody that I have dug them all out.
See Dianella longifolia (Pale Flax Lily) I also have see a bit on Dianella revoluta both in our garden and on Mt Ainslie.
But none so far on Dianella tarda, also in out garden.

We've had the same problem with plants in our garden at home - I've no idea what causes it!
