Tritonia Pink (Tritonia gladiolaris) has multiple pretty pink flowers on each stem.
Tritonia presents as only a small bulb but don’t let size deceive you- it produces an amazingly gorgeous flower! Similar to Freesias, they have taller stems and naturalise more effectively; no fragrance means they are a good addition for allergy sufferers who find scented gardens difficult to cope with. They are a very tolerant plant and suit just about every climate. Mid-late season flowering.
Supplied as dormant bulbs.
