DIERAMA COSMOS (DISSIMILE)
This extremely rare and recently discovered plant bears the darkest flowers of any dierama we have ever seen. Pendulous trumpets of deepest burgundy, almost black, contrast starkly with the white papery enclosing bracts from which they emerged. This superb new colour-break in dieramas is quite astonishing..
Sow at any time 5mm deep in a warm spot outside or in a propagator at between 15 and 20 degrees C. Germination usually takes from 4 to 8 months. Grow on individual grass-like seedlings in small pots. Keep frost-free and moist the first winter as dieramas are evergreen plants, and should be kept growing when young. Plant out young plants the following spring. Dieramas can be promiscuous, pollinating easily with other species and varieties. These seeds may produce some flower colours differing from the parent plants.
