RHS Award of Garden Merit

Gladiolus callianthus

Also known as Gladiolus murielae, Abyssinian Gladioli, Acidanthera or Peacock Orchid. These plants originate from the high mountains of central Africa and are consequently only moderately hardy. They are, however, easy to lift once the first frosts have browned the foliage and, kept dry through winter, survive many years. The leaves are shaped like lovely pleated fans and the much admired white flowers with a deep burgundy eye have a remarkable and heady scent. They make good cut flowers.

Planting Instructions

A 12" pot will need about 7 - 10 bulbs. Do buy enough to keep some back to plant late in late May for a longer display into the cooler autumn days. Plant in an open more moist position in the garden and in if you wish to overwinter the bulbs, they will need a dry frost-free winter rest.
