This hardy flax lilly has shiny bright blue bunches of fruit. The plant can serve many purposes. It is good for binding sand and reducing soil erosion. Aborigines used the silky strong leaf fibre to make string and baskets. The fruit is used for blue dye and is also edible. The berries are arguably the best tasting of all 15 flax lillies native to Australia.
