Fairy Wand Flower
This spectacular little-known corm comes from South Africa and augments just about any design situation, especially when it can be viewed from below. Surprisingly tough and undeniably enchanting, Fairy Wands withstand coastal winds and fairly low temperatures, while preferring good drainage.
Even though ‘Alba’ is smaller than Dierama pulcherrimum, it has larger, white, more bell-styled flowers that brightly charm its thin supple stems, unusual chartreuse calyxes, and slender less flexible, more upright leaves. This nimble-looking evergreen can be nestled into paving cracks along a terrace or sited near a pool and is most extraordinary when backlit and planted en masse.
Blooms June – August.
Size: 4' 0" high x 3' 0" – 4' 0" wide.
Hardy to zone 8.
