Product Information

Dierama Blackberry Bells is a strong growing hybrid with very large deep purple trumpet flowers which dangle from the arched stems, so earning it the familiar name of 'Angels Fishing Rod'. It's perfect for planting at the side of a pond or anywhere that the flowers hang and sway alluringly in the breeze. In flower from early June, despite their delicate appearance the stems are surprisingly strong and make exotic cut blooms.

Supplied as 3 x established plants in 7cm pots, ready to plant out.

Care Information

lanting Advice for Dierama:
  • Plant in an open, sunny position in a fertile soil that drains well - Dierama doesn’t like dry summers or wet winters.
  • Heavy soils can be improved by adding well-rotted compost and grit. Alternatively, they can be grown in a pot.
  • When planting, ensure that the top of the compost is level with the surrounding soil.
  • Water your potted plant well then dig a hole a little deeper and 3 x wider than the nursery pot.
  • Add a soil conditioner such as well-rotted manure to the earth removed from the hole if necessary.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots if crowded.
  • Place your plant in the hole at the same level at the pot.
  • Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling) and firm in the soil, avoiding the root ball.
  • Water well and mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.

 

Aftercare Advice for Dierama:

  • Keep plants well-watered but do not allow them to sit in wet.
  • Mulch well in winter for the first couple of seasons.

 

Pruning Advice for Dierama:
