GENERAL DESCRIPTION

Acidanthera Are Known Variously As Peacock Gladiolus, Fragrant Gladiolus And Sword Lily. This Species Of Gladiolus Is A Graceful Representative Of The Group. It Is Native To The Mountainous Regions Of East Africa And Adds A Lovely Tall Focal Point To Perennial Gardens And Containers. It Is A Flowering Perennial That Grows From A Bulbous Corm (A Swollen, Solid Bulb-Like Underground Structure) Covered With Fibrous Papery Skin. The Leaves Are Moderately-Sized, Strap Or Sword Shaped And Equitant, Which Means They Overlap Like A Fan. The Flower Spikes Appear In Summer Or Autumn. The Blooms Have Six Petals/Tepals That Join At The Base To Form Funnel-Shaped Blooms. They Loosely Line The Thin Arching Stems And Open From The Bottom Of The Spike Up. The Wonderfully Fragrant White Blooms Are Marked At The Throat With Purple-Red Triangles.

Plant Fragrant Gladiolus In Full Sun And Well Drained, Fertile Soil. It Looks Best When Planted In Masses Or Rows For Cutting. If Its Corms Are Planted At Intervals, Successions Of Blooms Will Grace The Garden For Continuous Viewing. Cut Or Remove The Flower Stems Just Below The Firt Leaf So The Remaining Foliage Can Replenish The Corm For Next Season. Where Not Hardy, This Tender Glad’s Corms Can Be Lifted And Stored In A Cool Dry Location Indoors Until The Danger Of Frost Has Passed.
