Gladiolus longicollis - Scented Gladiolus THIS LISTING IS FOR A PACK OF 5 SEEDS. Gladiolus longicollis is asmall gladiola from the Cape Floral Region, closely related to thenight scented gladiouls (G tristis). Growing from 35 - 60 cm tall,they produce a spike of between two and three flowers. The flowers areunusual in shape, almost like a trumpet lily in form, with almostsymetrical petals. The flowers are creamy yellow with varying degreesof spotting on the outer edges of the petals. The flowers developtheir scent late in the afternoon into the night, suggesting that theyare pollinated by nocturnal insects.They are a high altitude species, so hardy in Zones 6 - 9 and requirea dry, free draining location in full sun to part shade. From seedthey may take a couple of years to flower, but once they do, theplants will get bigger and better with each passing year. Ideal foruse in a cottage garden setting where they will add charm to the earlyautumn flowering. They can also be pot grown in the manner of alpines.Full instructions can be found by visiting my 'About Me' page andclicking on my store link there.
