Description: Dierama pulcherrimum is an elegant perennial forming a clump of long, narrow, evergreen leaves, with tall, arching stems bearing nodding, bell-shaped, rosy-purple flowers 4-6cm long in summer.

Care: Grow in humus-rich, well-drained soil in a sheltered situation with full sun. Propagate by seed in containers in a cold frame as soon as ripe. They may resent disturbance so leave until really congested before division of clumps in spring. Do not allow the corms to dry out. They may take 1-2 years to flower freely again. Tidy any winter-damaged foliage by cutting to the base in spring.
