Plant ixia tubers
Ixia bulbs should be planted in spring in a sunny spot with well-drained soil. Wait until the last frost has passed and make sure the soil is not too wet. Otherwise the tubers may rot. The tubers multiply in the same way as the gladiolus. 1 tuber develops into 1 or more new tubers and beads.

Ixia tubers are available from January. Of course you can already start landscaping and decorating your surroundings before the season starts. It is therefore possible to order ixia tubers online before the season starts, so you can be sure of your preferred choice of ixia tubers. The ixia tubers are delivered at the right planting time!

Different types of ixia
We offer a wide range of ixia in various colours (while stocks last). To make your choice you can use the filter; choose for example the bulb size, flowering period, colour, group or height. Ixia tubers can be planted in the ground manually.
History of the ixia
The ixia originally comes from South Africa. The name Ixia stems from the Greek ixiós and stands for mistletoe or bird's glue. It is probably named after the sticky sap the tubers contain. Linnaeus described the Ixia as early as 1737, when he was working with Clifford at the Hartenkamp, Heemstede, to study his plant collection. The species he described now belong to Aristea and Belamcanda. The Ixia as we know it was only introduced to us in 1780. The present-day cultivars have arisen from crosses. The main parents are Ixia maculata and Ixia columnaris.
