Description

Note : there are a limited quantity of these plants. They are in 10cm pots.

This plant has graceful airy arching flower stems and bell shaped pure white flowers which resemble small dainty fishing rods. It is a compact form reaching approx 1.2 metre high when in flower. It is the perfect perennial for the summer garden, and it also looks good in containers. It looks its best when it has room to show off its graceful flowers, and is attractive when planted near water, but the corms must not get too wet over winter, so careful placing is required, once the seeds have grown to corms, if you are planting near water.
Dieramas like an open, sunny position in a fertile, loamy, moist, but well-drained, soil, which doesn’t dry out in summer or become waterlogged in winter. Heavier clay soils and lighter sandy soils should be improved by incorporating well-rotted organic matter. Alternatively, dieramas do well in raised beds.

Dieramas can be promiscuous, pollinating easily with other species and varieties. These seeds may produce some flower colours differing from the parent plant, although I don’t have any other colours in my garden.
