A Reblooming Surprise

Here it is the end of August and the Watsonia is coming into full bloom! This lovely corm from South Africa usually blooms at the end of Spring and then goes pretty much dormant throughout the summer. This one must be a bit confused!

Rebloom is such a nice bonus.

the flower stem looks similar to a gladiolus, doesn't it?? the flower is beautiful. I wonder what made it rebloom??

I have had a watsonia for at least 18 years and it has never bloomed it comes up with the green leaves and all that but it never blooms...I wonder why? Not enough sun ...to much?? You are lucky to have it blooming now.
