The Wildly Wonderful Peacock Orchid

  • Incredible, Statement-Making Blooms
  • Blooms with Maroon Center Fading to Pure-White
  • Lovely, Sweet Fragrance
  • Deer Resistant
  • Easy to Grow

Strut your stuff with one of the most beautiful summer flowers, the Peacock Orchid (Gladiolus callianthus 'Murielae'), with elegant, pure-white blooms and maroon centers, atop the sharply-dressed green foliage.

The Peacock Orchid, resembling an orchid, is actually a fast-growing Gladiolus bulb variety, reaching its mature height of 2-3 quickly.

Enjoy the wonderfully sweet fragrance when in bloom that will make you want to sit outside and enjoy the outdoors.

Plant this magnificent flower where you want instant impact, along a border, or even in containers. On top of all that, they make great cut flowers for your floral arrangements. This flower really can do it all!

The Peacock Orchids behave like perennials in growing zones 7-10! In colder zones, you can dig up the bulbs, store them over the winter, and plant them again in the Spring, like an annual plant. These corms may be left in the ground year-round in USDA Zones 7-10.

Peacock Orchids grow best in full sun, with well-drained, but moist soil. Use mulch to help retain moisture, and these will be some of your easiest to grow flowers in your landscape.

Not to mention the physical difference mulch can make on the overall appearance of your landscaping. This will allow the colors to really pop!

Don't hesitate and order your very own Peacock Orchid today at Nature Hills Nursery!
