    1. They’re very recognisable so I’m not surprised the photo has aided your identification of the plant! -and very pleased we’ve unknowingly been a help ๐Ÿ™‚ Merry Christmas to you and your family Tracy!

  1. Beautiful photo! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this plant! I am so fortunate to have a Dierama pulcherrimum that produces white flowers named “Summer Snow”. This was given to me by my family a few years ago for Mother’s Day. It came from a nursery in California where the plant is known as the “Fairy Wand Flower”. I really like the name “Angel’s Fishing Rod” too! I must tell you that the title of this post caught my eye. I have been a lover of Angels since childhood and a collector for over 50 years…they are the holiday decor throughout my home this year. Hope your Christmas was delightful! Thank-you!

    1. Merry Christmas Ellen! It’s so sweet to hear that you’ve been a collector of angels for over 50 years. The white Dierama is really special, not so common to see it here but I think I did see a white one in another part of the gardens. Wish I could visit and see your angel collection.. sounds wonderful!
