GLADIOLUS TRISTIS 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 with compost or grit 5mm deep, in a cool, well-lit spot outdoors. Artificial heat is not needed and can prevent germination. Many species will only germinate in the spring after a good chilling or freezing in the moist seed tray in the winter. Grow on seedlings in small pots before planting out into sharply draining compost in a pot, or the open ground in a well-drained spot.
