Ixia (wand flowers or African corn lily) are exotic South African Iris relatives that produce spikes of beautiful flowers in a range of bold colours including white, yellow, peach, pink, and magenta. Considerable disagreement exists online as to hardiness but it seems that bulbs should be hardy in free-draining soils in zone 8 and, if mulched, in zone 7. In colder regions grow in a container and bring into a frost free location for winter.
