Dierama Blackbird is a truly beautiful plant with the darkest flowers within the Dierama family. Arching, wiry 'rod like' stems rise through tufts of grassy, evergreen foliage. Every summer, stems rise, looking delicate but are actually pretty strong, holding deep red-purple, bell-shaped flowers that hang pendulously, like fish from a rod (hence the common name Angel's Fishing Rods), and nod, even on the calmest of days, providing continual movement. Native to South Africa, Dierama look amazing when grown amongst grasses where they will form clumps, from which the flower stems will rise above. The flowers are great cut for a vase and are much loved by bees and butterflies. Dierama prefer to be grown in moist, well-drained soil in sun. Growing to a height of 90-100cm, and spread of 30-50cm, they are hardy, cormous, herbaceous perennials, which thrive outside all year round in the UK with no winter protection required other than to ensure the corms do not get too wet and rot in the ground.
