A lovely, iris-like flower from South Africa. Grows into clumps of dark green, rigid, sword-shaped leaves, producing lots of flowers from late spring right through the summer. Flowers are white with yellow nectar guides and purple centres. Grows to a height of 1-1.5m. Plants look good grown together in groups along paths or next to driveways.
Dietes grandiflora likes a sunny or part shaded site, and tolerates light shade. Flowers best when fed and watered regularly. Lift the rhizomes if planted in areas with frosts greater than -7°C and protect over winter. Or grow in pots and move indoors.
Pack of 10 seeds. Sow in spring or autumn (needs cool temperatures). Sowing instructions and a colour photo are printed on the packet.
