Gladiolus ceresianus - Gladiola

This listing is for a pack of 5 seeds.

This species of Gladiolus comes from  Namaqualand through to the Karoo area and is found on stony ground, with clay soil. 

It grows to around 15 cm tall and has a spike with one to four flowers, growing at an incline (almost parallel to the ground before lifting to hold the flower upright).  The flowers are white with maroon striped markings, the lower petal being yellow/green with maroon markings.  The flower has an almost orchid like look to it.  These, like most gladiolus, are borne late in the year (late summer/early autumn/fall)

This plant is better off grown in pots (the netted kind are best) and sunk into the ground when in growth, but lifted and stored cool and dry in the winter after foliage has died down. They are very suitable for an alpine bed, where shelter from the worst of the winter wet can be provided.

Full instructions can be found by visiting my 'About Me' page and clicking on my store link there.
