Gladiolus tristis

Archive entry 29.03.15

21st April 2006

A winter growing species from South Africa which has flowered here in March and April. The scented flowers are quite wonderful when most of the bulbs in pots are hovering around dormancy.
The leaves are very long and thin, and start to grow in autumn. The flower spikes are almost insignificant until the buds open.
