Several deliciously fragrant flowers in many colors grow gracefully on wiry stems above miniature Gladiolus-like leaves. Excellent cut flowers. Native to South Africa, they are a popular bulb for borders, rock gardens and containers in mild winter climates (Zones 9 to 11). In colder areas, plant corms in spring. In all areas, grow as houseplants for indoor blooming. When foliage dies down in fall, withhold water. In cold climates, lift and store bulbs in a frost-free place or grow in pots in a sunny window. Self-sows if faded flowers are not removed.
For an abundance of both color and fragrance, mass in clumps or drifts. Double-flowered and bicolor varieties are available.
