Watsonia borbonica 'Bedazzled' and 'Cherry Splash'
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.
|various colors (spring-summer)
|well drained soil
This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
