Dierama pulcherrimum died back

United Kingdom Gb

I have some dierama plants in a pot while we are house hunting and the leaves have all died off so that the pot looks completely empty - is this normal or have I lost my lovely plants?

On plant Dierama pulcherrimum



check in the pot for a corm type structure. if they are firm they are probably ok. i have had sudstanial die back but there are new shoots showing.
welcome to GoY too.

Thank you for getting back to me so quickly! Just had a look in the pot and there are a couple of squashy corms but it is quite a big pot so I am hoping that there are a few firm corms in there - I will not disturb the plant anymore and hope for a few green shoots in the coming month from the remainder of the plant.

Thank you for the welcome!
