 Acidanthera murielae or Gladioulus calianthus take your pick! (Acidanthera murieliae (Abyssinian Gladiolus) Gladiolus calianthus)

Turkish Glads, Abyssinian gladiolus, Gladiolus calianthus or what ever you may call them...they are the most delicious smelling flowers... personally I think the name of peacock orchid should be dropped it is not an orchid and there are actual orchids with that name.

Mine are just leaves at the moment! I love these flowers. You've reminded me why, Lori!

Yes Spritz, I've deadheaded most of the first planting, the second planting is middling....and the later planting is just putting up blossom. I decided to try staggered planting to see if I could extend their bloom into the late fall season, As long as I catch all the frost warnings and give them paperbag hats overnite I should be able to have them blooming til killing frost in November. fingers crossed... I usually dig all the corms before then but will leave the late planting to see if they are ok to dig in Nov.

these are beautiful - my neighbour has a few clumps getting established, wonder if she'll mind me pinching some.....

Do you have to dig them up for winter in Devon, Hoya105? Or are you lucky enough to be able to winter them in the garden? I have to dig mine; they wouldn't survive the winter in the soil... no reason that your friend would not share...they are not expensive as corms go...and they divide readily... lots of little cormlets attached to the parent bulb... I plant them and let them come up but they don't bloom they just grow the corm...I dig them in the fall and: tah-dah, millions of little glads to plant next spring!!
