Pretty, bell-shaped pale mauve flowers hanging from long wiry stems from July until August, making it one of the last varieties to flower. This is one of the varieties that must not be allowed to dry out, it can in fact stand at the edge of a pond in place of an iris!!
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.
