IMGP1908 Peacock Orchid - Acidanthera

People describe the fragrance of the Peacock Orchid as everything from 'haunting' to 'mesmerizing.' Either way, there's no reason not to include this perennial in your garden or greenhouse. They grow from corms, bloom profusely, smell delightful, and multiply with practically no effort on the grower's part. Be prepared to be mesmerized and haunted. This flower packs the punch needed for both. I grow mine in a pot of course. Even though they are called "orchid" they are actually from the gladioli family
