African Corn Lily (Ixia maculata) 玉米百合
Pretty and fragrant perennial flowering bulbs from Iris family. I am fond of its nice, sweet fragrance! I have planted them for the second years now and because they are not as cold hardy here in zone 6 so they have be by my picture window over winter. I have pollinated the flowers and hope able to seed. If it can set seeds, I will update and add the images.
It prefers full sun to partial shade location in well drained soil. Fairly easy to grow. Blooming time in spring. You can propagate them by dividing the bulbs since the bulbs are small or by seeds if you can get them. Mature size:1′(H) x 6″(W). USDA Zones:8-10. Plant stay evergreen in these zones.
玉米百合是原生於南非的鳶尾科小型球根. 在溫暖的氣候時是常綠的. 喜全日照到半日照的環境,排水良好的土壤. 株高1呎,寬幅6″. 容易以分球和種子來繁殖. 春天開花,這個黃花的品種的花很香,是怡人的甜香. 我蠻喜歡的. 這屬的都很好種. 我已幫花授粉,若是結種子的話再來貼圖記錄.
