Plant grows about 3 ft tall
I am trying to identify the plant so I can look after them during winter so they grow again next year.
Tried to upload pictures but cannot find how to do it
Sorry the whole description didnt come out above for some reason
Bulb grown crocosmia type plant with 6 large (3 to 4 ") white seperate flowers at top of plant all flowers 6 petals with long stamens (4) and a purple centre to flower.
Can anyone tell me how to upload pictures of the plant in question?
I have tried clicking on insert an amiage but that doesnt work
Julian, click on the tree on the tool bar of the text box, to the right of the smiley face and the left of the spell check
many thanks but I have already tried that without success
Are the flowers in a spike, one on top of the other, or all together at the top?
Try looking up gladioli and see if that fits. there are lots of varieties and colours, but the flowers are basically the same shape.
Oh. In that case I have no idea. Sorry Maybe someone else will have an idea
Many thanks to 4th Panda I have now uploaded pics
Yay! Don't know what they are (sorry ) but they are beautiful
They are Gladiolus murielae aka Acidanthera
They are right! So pleased I have now identified them. Go to the top of the class!
Now, the next question!
Should I dig them up and put them in greenhouse or a dark garage for the winter to protect them?
Allow the leaves to go yellow and die down. Lift and store the corms frost free ( but not too warm) Plant deep next spring in a sunny position in well drained soil.
They're rather nice. Maybe I'll put them on next year's list
and highly scented.
cross out the maybe, I will. Thanks fb
Many thanks for all your help!
