Peacock Orchid - Acidanthera bicolor
Pure white Gladioli-like flowers, decorated with a mahogany blush in the throat. These easy to grow corms produce 6-8 of these beautifully fragrant flowers per stem; an excellent choice for the summer garden! In zones 7-10 the corms can be left in the ground. In severe winters protection with a mulch is advisable in zones 7 and 8. These corms need to be lifted and stored frost-free in the cooler zones. Native to Ethiopia.
Hardy in zones 5-11, elsewhere dig and store in the winter
