In midsummer, this rare, elusive, and relatively dwarf plant has pendulous, pale blue to pinkish-lilac bells, and other variants in between, and is native to northern and south central Natal. It is rather similar to the small D. trichorrhizum which prefers moister conditions than this species, and which is often found growing in shale and dry grassland.

Sowing Advice

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.
