unknown plant

Hi all. Im struggling to find out what this plant is. Any takers? 


 Its 3-4ft tall with more blooms about to open. Cheers


  • Hi.

    I think it is Gladiolus Muriale, it is also known as Acidanthe Muriale.

    I agree. When I grew them they were called Acidanthera but I knew they were related to gladdys. I think they're gorgeous and have a very distinctive scent but they only lasted a couple of years for me..

  • They only last for a couple of years for me too . I had them in pots for the first year and then transplanted them to the garden, after that they disappeared, I think the severe winter we had 2 years ago finished them off, should have lifted them and stored.image. Very pretty though.

    Acidanthera or Peacock Orchids. Got them in my garden image

  • Oh thank you, thank you, thank you all. Ive searched everywhere and couldnt find it anywhere. Is it best to lift it in the late autumn or should i leave in situ?
