Product Description

Gladiolus callianthus Murielae

The beautifully flowered Gladiolus or Acidanthera is a charming plant that belongs to the genus Gladiolus in the family Iridaceae. It is very similar in appearance to our beloved gladiolus.

Its appearance
It is one of the most aromatic bulbous plants. Other names: Gladiolus callanthus, Acidanthera, Gladiolus Muriel, Scented Gladiolus, Fragrant Gladiolus, Abyssinian Gladiolus, Peacock Orchid. The plant produces snow-white flowers with a decorative purple centre. The flowers are somewhat similar to lilies. They are star-shaped, 5-8 cm in diameter. Each flower has six petals (perianth leaflets). The flowers are pointed and slightly corrugated. The flowers grow on a long flower stalk (90 cm high), towering above the sword-shaped leaf bundle. The plant is 1-10 cm wide. The flowers are in a spike-like inflorescence, 2-10 of each. They exude a lovely fragrance. The flowering of a single flower stalk can last up to a month. The flowers in the inflorescence open gradually from bottom to top.

They are star-shaped and 5-8 cm in diameter.

The plant is 1-10 cm wide.

The flowers are arranged on a long flower stalk (90 cm high).

The planting distance should be about 15 cm.

This plant blooms in autumn when most other bulbs have already finished flowering (August-September). It is recommended for flowerbeds or for growing in a potted garden. Also suitable as cut flowers. The bulbs are small, measuring 5/6 cm. They are frost-sensitive and do not overwinter in the soil like other gladiolus species.

Gladiolus callianthus Murielae prefers permeable substrate and sunny, wind-protected positions. If the soil is too heavy, coarse river sand will suffice. The planting distance should be approximately 15 cm. apart. After planting, water the bulbs generously to stimulate their growth. For best results, apply a liquid fertiliser with a high potassium content in the spring. Remove the flowers that have bloomed at regular intervals to prolong flowering.
