Description
From early summer, the South African Corn Lily throws up sprays of starry, white blooms on slender, upright stems. Ixia ‘Spotlight’ is a particularly attractive variety with contrasting burgundy blotches at the centre of each bloom, and raspberry pink stripes to the reverse of the petals. These half-hardy bulbs thrive in sunny borders, greenhouses, containers, or in a sheltered spot at the base of a wall. Simply lift Ixia bulbs each autumn and store them through the coldest months, before replanting in the following spring. Height: 40cm (16"). Spread: 20cm (8").

How to Grow
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.
More Info
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.
