I can grow this, but not Dierama SL!! Any tips on that?

Must be full sun if poss or at least mostly sunny area, moist but well drained so plenty of grit when you plant them, if you have them on the dry side they will grow but very slowly, once flowering don't move them or they will sulk for a year or two.
