DIERAMA 'PINK ROCKET' (EX ERECTUM)
A new and exclusive, stunning, unique and distinctive compact hybrid which we have bred here. This lovely plant produces many short, strong, erect stems which hold multi-flowered heads of outwards or upwards-facing, flared, bright pink blossoms, unlike any of the other pendulous-flowered hybrids on the market.
Sow at any time 5mm deep in a warm spot outside or in a propagator at between 15 and 20 degrees C. Germination takes from one to three months. Grow on individual grass-like seedlings in small pots. Keep frost-free and moist the first winter as dieramas are essentially evergreen plants, and must not be dried out, 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.
