The Q&A Archives: Angel's Fishing Rod

Question: We are trying to locate a wet-area plant (bulb?) we recently saw blooming in Ireland called Angel's Fishing Rod. Can you be of assistance?

Answer: The plant you're looking for is Dierama, also known as Angels' fishing rods, or Wand flower. It's a clump-forming plant with grassy foliage and drooping funnel or bell shaped flowers borne loosely on long, arching stems. It grows 3'-5' tall and grows either by corms or from seeds. (Seed grown plants will flower within 3 years.) Nurseries in your area that probably carry the plant include Swanson's Nursery, 9701 15th Ave. NW, Seattle, 98117, and Molbaks Greenhouse and Nursery, 13625 NE 175 St., Woodinville, 98072.
