Saw this plant, the one with long, drooping stalks and conical-shaped pink flowers in the botanical gardens near me. It's sooo pretty, would love to know what it was.
Anyone got a coveted plant they wold love to have but don't/can't?
Melanie, the plant in your picture is Dierama, also known as Angels fishing rod.
I don't know which variety though.
I had those Angels fishing rods by my pond and it was so pretty but I'm afraid they are not long lived and it eventually vanished .
I grew it once, and , as Forester2 says, it didn't last long with me either.
I understand it's pretty easy from seed, but these are likely to be very variable and not come true to the parent.
I've just bought a tiny dierama for my new pink border to try and detract from a snowberry stump which I am trying to stop re growing.
If I had 4 metres spare () and slightly acidic soil, I'd get a giant fern.
Really? I have neutral soil. Still can't really justify it though- I could fit at least 20 plants in that space and I'd have to dig up my drive to accommodate it
