Common name bugle lily
Family iridaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z8-10)
Flowers various colors (spring-summer)
Size 4-6'
Light sun
Cultural notes well drained soil

Gladiolus relative from South Africa, with trumpet-shaped flowers on tall spikes that rise above sword-shaped upright leaves. The plants retreat underground to their bulbs in summer. We're trying two varieties from mail-ordered bulbs. They should be hardy here in Houston, so hopefully they'll be with us for years to come.

In our garden, this plant grows in the following areas: back fence border, left fence border
