Description

This is the earliest of all "Angels' Fishing Rods" to flower, in April, May and June. Numerous flared pink trumpets dangle on thin stems, which are out-facing rather than pendulous. This most unusual new plant was collected as unknown seed from the Drakensberg Mountains.

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 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.
