Description

A native of South Africa, this winter growing species has wonderful scent in the evenings which is absolutely heavenly in April when the greenish-white flowers open progressively up the long rush-like stems. It is quite unique amongst gladioli because as it originates from a wet part of South Africa it will do perfectly well in damp locations.

Sowing Advice

Sow seeds at any time covering them with compost or grit 5mm deep, keeping the seed pot in a cool, well-lit spot outdoors. Artificial heat is not needed and can prevent germination so be very patient as many species will only germinate in the spring after chilling or freezing in the moist seed tray in the winter. Grow on individual seedlings in small pots until of sufficient size to be potted on or planted out into the open ground.
