Very graceful and showy plants. The flowers, which arelike small Gladioli, are produced on long branched spikes and are
excellent for cutting. Plant 3 in. deep and 2 in. apart in sandy loam
and leaf-mould. The corms should never be kept long out of the ground,
as they shrivel, and weak growth and few flowers are the result.
Though they are hardy it is well to give them a covering of litter in
winter. They may also be grown in pots. Height, 2-1/2 ft.
