Dierama pendulum ‘Alba’
at Digging Dog

Dierama

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 appreciating a well draining soil.

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' high x 3'–4' wide; hardy to zone 8.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!

Customer Comment:

“Ordered a selection of plants from Digging Dog earlier this year: campanula, ajuga, columbine, etc. All looked great, with healthy root systems. They've all settled in well and are thriving. I will order from them again.”
