Description

Aptly nick-named Firecracker, Dichelostemma 'Pink Diamond' has a mini-explosion of tubular flowers, each with a frilly little sparkle of white petals at the end. These long-lasting pink blooms erupt in summer at the top of tall, upright stems and look just lovely in mixed planting schemes, bringing height and structure as well as a bright pop of colour. Dichelostemma 'Pink Diamond', a Californian native gem, is a real sun lover and ideally suited to rockeries or sunny border. But wherever you choose to put it, you’ll want it to be somewhere prominent so you can admire its exquisite flower form and intricate detail!
