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.
Narrow evergreen blade-like leaves, supple slender stems and silver-laced papery calyces set the stage for a beguiling floral display of pendent fairy-style bells suffused in deep lavish blackberry shades. Position ‘Merlin’ against a golden-leafed or steel-hued backdrop, supply well-drained soil with adequate summer water and enjoy the magic.
Size: 3' 0" high x 2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 7.
Dierama ‘Merlin’ (P-1930)
