Gladiolus murieliae (Acidenthera) - DRY BULBS - Small bag (8 bulbs)

Plant type: Bulb

This species gladiolus originates from the Eastern coast of Africa and forms loose spikes of up to ten fragrant pure-white flowers in late summer. It grows up to 1m (39") tall when in full flower forming an impressive clump in the border. Plant in groups of 5-8 corms, 12.5cm (5") deep in well-drained soil in full sun - the corms are half hardy so lift in winter or mulch well and cross your fingers!!

Plant in spring

As a rule of thumb, bulbs should be planted in a hole, the depth of which is around 3 times the height of the bulb. We usually dig our planting holes a little deeper than this and then fill the base with some fine grit which helps with drainage directly under the bulb. Never plant at perfectly measured distances apart as this can look artificial – for smaller bulbs we plant in clumps of five to nine in a staggered group so that they look more natural when they flower. For full tips on planting bulbs please click on the ‘cultivation guides’ tab on our home page.
