GLADIOLUS TRISTIS var. CONCOLOR
From high on the open grassy slopes of the African mountains come these sizeable, exquisite, fragrant, cream-coloured flowers, which open in succession on spikes. Spreading by corms or seeds, they make superb specimens in any well-drained and preferably warm garden, with the perfume being much more overpowering at night.
Sow seeds at any time covering them very thinly with compost or grit, and leaving some of the seed showing, as light can initiate germination, just as in the wild, and leave in a well-lit, warm spot. Sometimes, artificial heat may not be needed, and may prevent germination, as some species will only germinate in the spring after being chilled in the moist seed tray. Grow on in sharply draining compost in a pot, or the open ground.
