Photographing Dianella


What Good Photographs Must Have 5

Dianella Nigra and Dianella Haematica can often be confused with each other as at a glance they look the same.

The first photo shows what the fruits of both look like - there is no difference.

However, at the bottom of the leaves is where the difference lies - the D.nigra has green at the bottom as seen in the second photo while the D.haematica has red at the bottom as seen in the third photo with a closeup in the forrth photo.

Make sure you photograph the bottom to help with ID.
