D is for Dianella longifolia

D is for dianella longifolia, aka pale flax lily…
This plant has a strong linear fibre in its dark green strappy leaves, which dry to an olive green colour. It’s great for contrast in an exposed core coil weave.

D is also for dendrocnide excelsa, aka giant stinging tree, which yields amazing inner bark for cordage, string bags and fishing nets as well as a number if other uses – but watch out for the leaves!!!
