Fragrant Perennials
EVENINGFLOWER GLADIOLUS Gladiolus tristis         $2.50
Or as it is known in its native South Africa, Yellow Marsh Afrikander, where it apparently grows in low wet areas though this is not a necessary qualification of its cultivation. Like some other night-blooming fragrant plants such as the Evening Scented Stock, it is a plant of not too much consequence during the day. Growing to about two feet tall, it has three sword-like leaves and three to four sulfur-yellow flowers to two inches long which at night emit a clove-like perfume that carries on the night breeze. HP to zone 7.
