Dierama trichorhizum

Dierama-trichorhizum

Dierama trichorhizum is a diminutive fairy wand 18 to 24″ tall  with nodding flared mauve bells in summer.  Grow in sun in well drained soil with regular to low water.  We have found Dierama to be quite drought tolerant.  It’s small size makes it ideal for the rock garden or  front of border.   This species if from alpine regions of South Africa and is solidly hardy to about 0 degrees.  Iridaceae
