Dierama (Angel's Fishing Rod)

Dierama is a S African native genus closely related to Iris. Gives many excellent garden plants with showy flowering stalks of flowers in brightest colors. Most will grow from rhizomes with plenty of flat, iris-like leaves. Leaves from evergreen species will die at temperatures below -10°C, but will emerge again in late spring (April). For any well drained and humus-rich soil in a sunny spot. All will flower freely if grown as pot plants under cool, yet not necessarily frostfree, conditions in the wintergarden or unheated greenhouse.
Sow late spring in any well drained soil in full sun at some 15°C to 25°C. Best if pre-cultivated under frost-free conditions for two years. Keep pots frost free at max. 10°C in winter. Transplant young corms rather deep in late spring of the second year. A thick layer of dry mulch as protection is recommended for younger plants during winter in Central Europe.
All are USDA Climate Zone 8 unless otherwise specified.
20 seeds per package.
