Known as blueberry lily, blue flax-lily, black anther flax-lily or spreading flax-lily is widely distributed within Australia and grows in extremely variable conditions, predominantly in sclerophyll, woodland and mallee forests.  Sometimes a dominant understorey species, it can form large spreading colonies. An erect, hairless, perennial herb with a lifespan of many years, forming clumps and growing from rhizomes underground.   Grows to about 1m in height x 1.5m diameter. 

Deep purple to blue flowers from spring to summer. The flowers stalks rise on wiry stems from the foliage, frequently exceeding it in height. Often has one flower a day opening which creates longer flowering periods.  The fruits are blue to purple and persist for many months after the flowers. Usually round in shape they measure from 4-10mm in diameter and contain 3-4 seeds. It is suitable for most soils, but prefers a well drained soil enriched with leaf mould and compost, and accepts part or full shade. It is very hardy once established, and has a wide moisture and temperature range excluding inland extremes. It is drought and frost resistant and is generally trouble-free.

Birds including parrots are attracted by the fruit.
