Does anyone know the name of this? It's growing in my garden, but I can't remember what it is.

Hi Christine, here in Victoria we have had no rain in October, my lawn was lush and is now drying off, I ,ve heard that WA is having good rain for 3 days so hope it comes my way. I,ve told my friend in WA to blow hard.

Hi Keryn, I used to avoid bulbs because I lost so many. Now, I pay more attention to providing them with water, and they seem to grow and flower lot better.

Comment by Keryn, USDA Zone 10 Australia on October 6, 2014 at 5:12pm

Christine, they are well suited to the Australian climate, my Ixia has out lasted my  freesias. Which have dryed off already with the few warm days we have had. My tulips flowered for about 2 weeks, thats why I don,t plant many bulbs.

Hi Keryn, if you use google images you will find quite a few photos of those miniature gladiolus. Likewise Scott's information about the name of the genus  also brings up handy photos.

I would never have thought of those plants as being from the gladioli family, except that you asked. I was just imagining they were some plant the older folk had keep going for many years. I never saw it in the places where I  grew up.

Thanks Scott, for that.

Comment by Scott on September 30, 2014 at 8:54pm

Ixia - The genus Ixia consists of a number of cormous plants native to South Africa from the Iridaceae family. Some distinctive traits include: sword-like leaves, and long wiry stems with star-shaped flowers

Comment by Keryn, USDA Zone 10 Australia on September 30, 2014 at 5:33am

I just had a thought and looked it up. They could Gladioli nanus, or dwarf , miniature , baby gladioli. Not as formed as the modern type ????
