Acidanthera bicolor muielae

Peacock Orchid, Gladiolus callianthus, Abssyinian

As with its relative the Gladiolus, Acidanthera's spikes of fragrant, creamy white flowers make excellent cut flowers. Individual, 2- to 3-inch-wide blossoms are star-shaped with deep chocolate brown or crimson-purple centers. Plants have sword-shaped leaves. Dig up and store dormant corms. In spring, plant 4 to 6 inches deep in masses for naturalizing in warm climates or in containers.
