On one of my garden trips in the UK I visited the famous Great Dixter garden. There I saw the pink flowering plant for the first time in ‘the sunken garden’. I immediately fell in love with this extraordinary plant. I bought some seeds and with a lot of patience I managed to raise two plants. After two years they started flowering.
Every year when the beautiful pink flowers appear again, I am sitting next to them in awe. The flowers move on every sigh of wind. Those flowers, enchanting!
But, is a gardener ever satisfied? Is it ever enough? No. In another UK garden I saw a Dierama plant for sale. Dierama ‘Guinevere’, that name alone makes you have to have it! So, the plant went home with me.
Guinevere has been in my garden for three years now. Flowers? Alas none! Where is she waiting for? For her lover Lancelot?
For that reason, I will strictly address her. You will have to flower! Otherwise I will dig you out!
Sometimes that helps.
I am in love.
Dierama Guinevere. Never seen a flower.
I have seen a dark red variety in England. Mmmm! Must-have!
