DIERAMA BARR HYBRIDS (PULCHERRIMUM)
Seed collected from plants of this old cultivar originally selected at Broadleigh Gardens. Relatively short strong stems terminate in unusually large pendent flowers in a wide range of reds, purples and mauves.
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.
