White with a claret throat and a wonderful scent.

Have never seen these before. Are they planted as bulbs? Very pretty with the added value of scent.

Yes Lulu, they are planted as bulbs but I take them up for winter and replant when the warm spring weather arrives. Their scent is amazing! Incidentally, I bought mine from Aldi so if you have an Aldi store near you, keep an eye open for them because they weren't expensive.

Thanks for that, I love anything that smells good.

It is, I believe, a member of the Iris family and is also known as Peacock orchid....well worth growing.
