(Galtonia)

Galtonia includes four species of summer-growing bulbous perennials, all native to moist grasslands across eastern South Africa. They are closely related to plants in the genus Ornithogalum.

The fleshy underground bulbs produce clumps of thick, strap- to lance-shaped, erect or arching basal leaves. Long, airy, conical clusters of white or light green, trumpet-shaped or bell-shaped flowers are borne on tall leafless stems in summer. The flowers of some galtonias are fragrant....

(Cape Hyacinth , Summer Hyacinth)

Admired for its delightful summer display of fragrant white flowers, this winter-dormant perennial bulb from eastern South Africa is also remarkable for its cold-hardiness.

The fleshy underground bulbs give rise to thick, light- to medium-green, strap- to lance-shaped basal leaves that are erect or arching. In mid to late summer, tall, steeple-shaped clusters of nodding, white, green-tinged bell-flowers are borne atop waist-high, leafless stalks. The flowers expand from green buds, with the...

(Berg Lily, Drakensberg Lily, Summer Hyacinth)

The South African berg lily bears summer spikes of lightly fragrant, drooping white flowers. A seasonal summer bulb from the Drakensberg Mountains of South Africa, it is quite rare in cultivation but very beautiful.

The fleshy, light to gray-green leaves of this Galtonia are strap- to lance-shaped and may be held erect or gracefully arch. In late summer, depending on mildness of climate, leafless stalks rise and bear light green flower buds that open to show pendent, white flowers...

(Green Cape Hyacinth, Green-flowered Summer Hyacinth)

Particularly loved because of its midsummer floral display on arching stems, green cape hyacinth bears flower spikes of drooping tubular pale green flowers with a faint fragrance. A dormant to semi-evergreen herbaceous perennial from Lesotho and South Africa, it grows from bulbs.

The fleshy, medium to gray-green leaves are broad and lance-shaped. In midsummer or late summer, depending on mildness of climate, leafless stalks rise, arch and bear light green flower buds that open to pendent light...

(Gladiola, Gladiolus, Sword Lily)

The leaves are long, strap or sword-shaped and equitant, which means they overlap and unfold like a fan. The flower spikes appear in spring, summer or autumn. The colorful, funnel-shaped blooms have six petals/tepals that join at the base. They line the tall stems on one side and open from the bottom of the spike up. Most gladioli grown today are hybrids of complex origin. Nonetheless, there are three distinct types of Gladiolus hybrids with differing characteristics.

(Amsterdam Gladiola, Gladiola, Sword Lily)

Large snowy flowers line the tall upright spikes of this Grandiflora type gladiolus. Like most modern glads, it is a complex hybrid derived from some of the more than 250 species in the genus Gladiolus. All gladiolus are herbaceous perennials that grow from bulbous corms covered with fibrous papery skin. Many are native to Africa, particularly South Africa, but other species are from Asia, the Mediterranean and the Arabian Peninsula.

The long, sword-shaped leaves are equitant, which...

(Atom Gladiola, Gladiola, Sword Lily)

Elegant, smoldering red blooms with silvery rims line the upright flower stems of this heirloom Primulinus type Gladiolus, which was introduced in 1946. Bearing spikes of hooded, widely spaced flowers - in contrast to the crowded spires of the familiar Grandiflora hybrids - Primulinus glads are complex hybrids whose ancestry includes G. dalenii (formerly known as G. primulinus). They are among the most cold- and heat-tolerant glads. Gladiolus are herbaceous...

(Blue Isle Gladiola, Gladiola, Sword Lily)

The royal hues of this magnificent Grandiflora hybrid set it apart from most other Gladiolus. Famed for their crowded spikes of showy flowers on tall sturdy stems, Grandiflora glads are complex hybrids derived from some of the more than 250 Gladiolus species. All gladiolus are herbaceous perennials that grow from bulbous corms covered with fibrous papery skin. Many are native to Africa, particularly South Africa, but other species are from Asia, the Mediterranean and the Arabian...
