Gorgeous Acidanthera (Murielae)

Beautiful Acidanthera
It is time for me to share my pride and joy of this gorgeous flower, which is the Acidanthera Murielae, and commonly known as sword lily! I bought two bags of three bulbs/corms each at the Dollar Store early in Spring, and planted them in my flower pot.

Three Gorgeous Acidanthera
The body stems and leaves resembled gladiolus, and the flowers have a maroon center with light fragrant. Each stem produced about 6 to 8 flowers but they took turn to bloom. Thus, I constantly have new flower to enjoy.

Macro of Sword Lily
I have to remember to dig up the bulbs since they are annual flowers, and store them in a cool dry place after clean the corms for next year planting. These gorgeous sword lilies loved full sun and well drained soil. If I can grow them, so can you!
