Hybrid seedlings between these species which produce classic Angels Fishing Rods from near white, through shades of pink to near purple.  Mostly 1.5m-1.8m tall. Drained but good soil in full sun.

Being seed grown these are generally good, vigorous plants and have so far produced a wide range of flower colours.  Dierama can take a year or two to settle in and start flowering but these seem to be flowering quite well in pots!

Our preferred cultivation technique is to keep them a bit on the dry side overwinter, in the ground this means a well drained soil.  During the growing season, particularly early summer, they do seem to appreciate plenty of moisture.

Both species are native to southern Africa.
