Out of a clump of broad-grassy foliage appear gladiolus-like spikes of star-shaped flowers in bright colors, in the North West lasting past Christmas is not uncommon. They like a well drained soil, but not too dry in summer. Excellent cut flowers.

We picked this one up at our regular gentian source in Switzerland where it's sold without a variety name, just as the species. We determined it ought to be hardier than others but still have to do more testing to be sure. Either way, it has proven to be a plant with sturdy stems and large, bright salmon-pink flowers. Likes well drained soil, but prefers some summer moisture. Excellent cut flowers. May bloom all winter in zones 8 and higher.

They like a well drained soil, but not too dry in summer. Excellent cut flowers. May bloom all winter in zones 8+.
