Description
 
An impressive Fairy Wand Flower or Angel's Fishing Rod.  This is a good species with a narrow presentation and nice flowers of good rich pink held 4'-5' tall on wiry stems.  This is not a big robust clumper but tends towards a narrower verticality quite in keeping with modern design trends.  I think we have only seen one Dierama so far that has not floated our boat so some might say we are so biased that our opinions are worthless but we prefer to think that the genus is just chock-full of good garden plants with this being one of them.  Evergreen except in cold winters.  Mulch is good and Dierama do appreciate decent soil that doesn't dry although they tolerate some periods of dry.
