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!

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! LikeLike Reply That is beautiful. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Thank you! I’m glad you like it.
