How do you grow dierama?
Posted by Dobies Staff on 18 December 2014 02:04 pm

Dierama plants require an open, sunny position where the soil does not dry out in summer and is not waterlogged in winter. Young plants may need some frost protection in winter. The plants are slow to establish and will start to flower in one to two years.

Improve clay and sandy soils by incorporating well-rotted manure or garden compost prior to planting. When planting potted plants the top of the compost should be at soil level. Allow plenty of room in between plants as they will produce large clumps. Keep the plants well watered in dry spells during the growing season.

The plants will produce a large clump and every few years will need dividing in spring, although this will delay flowering by one or two years while they establish.

Dierama are semi-evergreen plants and any brown leaves should be carefully removed in spring.
