Dianella tasmanica, commonly known as the Tasman Flax-lily or Tasmanian Flax-lily is a herbaceous strappy perennial herb of the family Xanthorrhoeaceae, subfamily Hemerocallidoideae, found in southeastern Australia and Tasmania. It has leaves to 80 cm, flower stem to 1.5 m, and the berries are not edible. Blue flowers in spring and summer are followed by violet berries. It adapts readily to cultivation and is commonly seen in Australian gardens.
Dianella tasmanica was first described in 1858 by eminent English botanist and explorer Joseph Dalton Hooker. The genus name is derived from the Roman goddess Diana, with a diminutive suffix -ella.
