Description

Pendent bells varying in colour from bluish-mauve to pale purple open very early on in the season, preceding most other dieramas. This gorgeous, dwarf, new, and very hardy hybrid, was produced by using the rare pale blue Dierama trichorizum as one parent. It has very powerful hybrid vigour, and within two or three years makes a solid clump absolutely dripping with flowers in springtime.

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.
