Fairy Wand Flower
This spectacular little-known corm comes from South Africa and enhances 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.
Aptly named ‘Autumn Sparkler’s singular statement is its glowing lilac-pink blooms, which are positioned in a unique upward-facing, nonpendulous manner, appearing in the autumn long after others in the genus have dwindled. Embellished with uncommon eye-shaped markings at the base of each petal and looking a bit like an Ixia, the somewhat open, close-set flowers become an easy-to-view beacon of late season loveliness on taut erect wands. A coveted, rare plant found only in the small South African region known as Ngome, this Dierama’s tidy compact clump deserves a protected, well-traveled haunt.
Size: 3' 0" high x 2' 0" wide.
Hardy to zone 7.
