Unbeatable for bright color! These hybrids bloom from March through June, opening sprays of elegant flowers on straw-like stems in gleaming shades of white, yellow, orange, pink, and red. Plants grow best in full sun and reach a height of 16”. Plant them in beds, borders, or in pots. Enjoy them in the garden and as cut flowers.
Ixia Bluebird blooms from late spring into early summer, gracing the garden with star-shaped white flowers shaded with violet purple. Flowers top 12- to 18-inch stems over dark green sword-like foliage. Plant in borders, mixed beds, or grow in containers. The plants like sunny to partially shady locations and rich, well-drained soil. Excellent for cutting and long-lasting in the vase.
We planted this variety for our spring garden 2017 here in San Antonio, Texas. A lot of our cantaloupes started out with a pronounced curve on the flower end and going for about 2 inches. The flesh was sweet but on the curved part there was no flesh to eat. What caused this? Mary W.
