The flowers of Dierama latifolium grow on a branching, wand-like spike that arches and may reach more than 2 m in length. There are prominent, grassy white bracts around the flowers on the spike. The flower has six tepals with recurving tips. They are joined at the base in a funnel-like tube that opens in a bell-shape to a 1,5 cm wide mouth.
The nodding flowers are usually pink and notably paler than the deep magenta seen in this photo. The anthers are conspicuous thin, cream-coloured oblongs; the style divides into three tiny branches above the stamens (Manning, 2009; www.shootgardening.co.uk).
