Dierama igneum

Dierama igneum 

photo: peganum

Sultry, terracotta pink, 1.5” long pendulous blooms adorn graceful, arching 3’ long stems in mid-Summer. The long, slender, grass-like foliage grows densely to about 2’ tall & wide & is evergreen in mild Winter areas. Beautiful atop a wall, used in a hedge or spilling out of a container. Dieramas dolike some Summer water, but once established they can do without. Disturb the corms as littleas possible, as they are sensitive to this & avoid heavy, wet soils. To maintain, remove old growth & bloomed out stems as necessary.
