Seedlings from this famous and darkest of all dieramas will vary, but most plants should produce cascades of pendulous, funnel-shaped claret purple flowers on wiry stems. Seedlings occasionally produce paler flowers but there will be no rejects as all will be superb.

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.
