Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews
Flowering from early spring into summer, you can easily extend the flowering period by planting bulbs in late spring. Ixia or African Corn Lilies have star-shaped vibrant flowers that emerge in spires atop wiry stems. Ideal for the front of borders or in patio containers in full sun. Ixia do not like winter wet and so are best lifted and stored to be replanted in spring.

Plant Ixia bulbs in gritty or sandy, well drained soil in full sun. Plant each bulb at a depth of 12cm (5"), and a distance of 8cm (3") apart. Corn Lilies are half hardy, and require protection from frosts. If grown in borders outdoors, choose a very sheltered, sunny position. Alternatively grow them in greenhouse borders, or containers which can be moved to a frost free position during cold periods.
Water Ixia bulbs sparingly until the flower spikes appear. Increase watering as the blooms develop, and feed with a liquid fertiliser every few weeks. Reduce watering after flowering to allow a dry dormant period as the foliage dies back. Containers of Ixia bulbs should be moved to a frost free position over winter. Bulbs grown in borders outdoors should be lifted in autumn and stored over winter, before replanting in late spring the following year.
