This G. elwesii was found and well named by Joe Sharman in 1990 in Cambridge. The solid looking flowers exhibit a claw like tip to the base of the broad outer segments and when open the inner segment markings seem to mimic a green downturned mouth below two green eyes. Supplied as dormant bulbs.
Plant the bulbs immediately. If planting them in the ground use the smallest size of aquatic mesh pots to aid containment and identification. Fill with improved soil based potting medium and a little sharp sand. Label carefully and water sparingly until autumn.
