DIERAMA STRAWBERRY ICE CREAM
Arching stems carry pendulous bunches of bell-like flowers in all shades of pink shading down to white. A very generous bag to grow a large number of these most desirable plants. You can even simply scatter them where required but be careful of the seedlings as they can resemble grass!
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.
