Product Description - Gladiolus callianthus Murielae

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.

How to Plant - Gladiolus callianthus Murielae

Guide and tips for planting Gladiolus bulbs

  • Choose the planting location: Gladiolus bulbs prefer full sun and well-drained soil. Avoid planting in areas with standing water or where the soil remains soggy after rainfall.

  • Prepare the soil: Loosen the soil and remove any weeds or debris from the planting area. Amend the soil with compost or organic matter to improve the soil's fertility and drainage.

  • Plant the bulbs: Dig a hole that is about 8-12 cm deep and place the Gladiolus bulb with the pointed end facing up. Space the bulbs about 12-24 cm apart.

  • Cover the bulbs: Cover the Gladiolus bulbs with soil and gently press down to remove air pockets. Make sure the soil level is even with the surrounding soil.

  • Water the bulbs: Give the bulbs a thorough watering after planting to settle the soil around them. Gladiolus bulbs prefer consistently moist soil, so water them regularly, but avoid over-watering as this can cause rot.

  • Stake the plants: Gladiolus plants can grow tall and may need to be staked for support. Insert stakes into the ground near the bulbs before they start growing to avoid damaging the plant later on.

  • Monitor the bulbs: Gladiolus bulbs typically take about 2-3 weeks to emerge from the soil, so be patient. Once they emerge, water and fertilize regularly to encourage healthy growth. Gladiolus plants can bloom in mid to late summer and may require occasional fertilization throughout the growing season.
