Corn Lily 'Hogarth' Overview

Ixia 'Hogarth' is a spring-flowering cormous perennial that produces sword-shaped green foliage and upright stems bearing star-shaped creamy white flowers with reddish-purple centres. Also known as Corn Lily 'Hogarth', this cultivar of a South African native prefers well-drained soil in a full sun spot, making them ideal for growing in pots and containers that can be overwintered undercover. Plant these frost-tender bulbs in autumn approximately 10cm (4") deep and 7cm (3") apart if planting outdoors - container-grown bulbs can be placed closer together and water well. Ixia can be planted in the spring for a summer bedding display to be lifted and stored dry over winter. However, the flower is not as good in the second year and are frequently discarded.
