The long, arching flower spikes of Dierama pulcherrimum make it sway in the wind and increase the impression of it resembling an angel's fishing rod. Its magnificent magenta flowers weigh down the stems and bend the flower shaft in the same way an angler makes his cast, bringing added movement to the borders. Occasionally, the flowers can be white. In autumn, it bears brown grass-like heads to create added interest. It can be a little slow in getting established.
