Peacock Orchids delivers graceful, white orchid-like flowers with deep, merlot-colored centers. Each flower stalk produces several blooms, one opening after the other, just like it's close relative, the garden Gladiolus. Extremely easy to grow, these beautiful blooms produce a sweet scent reminiscent of jasmine, which is stronger at night, adding a delicate allure to both moonlit gardens and bouquets.

Peacock Orchids, absolute knock-outs in the garden, are actually not an orchid at all, but a Gladiolus! Each flower stalk produces several orchid-like blooms, each opening sequentially from late summer through fall. The individual flowers last a few days and make long-lasting cut flowers. Make sure to place Peacock Orchids where you can enjoy their lovely jasmine-like fragrance, which gets stronger at night.

Like a peacock, these exquisite flowers will rise above sword-like foliage and open like spectacular rare orchids. Due to their narrow profile, Peacock Orchids can be placed in tight spaces throughout a garden, but perform exceptionally well when placed in groups of 5 or more, or as a drift through a border or meadow.
