Dietes grandiflora 'Variegata', 30 seeds
For the African Iris collector, here is the hard-to-find VARIEGATED version of Dietes grandiflora. Also commonly called Fortnight Lily, it is an evergreen, rhizomatous perennial which produces 3-inch wide, exotic, milky-white flowers. Each flower has yellow and purple markings and lasts only one day, but is quickly replaced by another. The stiff, upright, sword-like foliage are arranged like a fan and adds a unique texture to the garden, providing year round interest. This rare selection features leaves with creamy-yellow stripes, and even blooming stalks are variegated. Hardy from zone 8 onwards. 3 feet tall and wide. Full sun to part shade. Thrives on neglect, drought-tolerant. Any garden soil. Fresh, exclusive seeds, harvested 10/2017.
