Dierama pulcherrimum

I remember this plant from working with the National Trust as an apprentice many years ago and would dearly love to introduce it into the courtyard garden I manage. Would love to get some Dierama corms. Funny how some plants lose popularity? This is a stunner and deserves much more credit.

    I agree! With their elegant, bell-shaped flowers it's easy to see how they got their common name 'Angels' fishing rods'. Even past their best, their blooms have a kind of stately elegance like elderly ladies dressed for dinner!

    They are best planted with space around them so you get the full flowing impact.

    Stunning plants, I gave a small one to a friend years ago, and until she rather rashly decided to move it one spring it did really well, ended up with about twenty four flower spikes on it. It was growing on top of a shallow slope, so was well drained, and we followed the guidelines from the seller who said they don't like to be crowded, they like a bit of space around their roots.

    I'v tried these lovely plants before but never had much success, I have a small growing one in a alpine sink at present, and have several seedlings from it. Any further advice or tips on growing more successfully would be much appreciated.

    I grow them from seed and they flower the second year They are very easy to germinate if you sow them in Sept
