q do you know what plant this is please
I have asked a few gardeners and no one seems to know, so please can you tell me I have had it for 15 years or more, they were small bulbs or corms I can't remember, but it is beautiful, and flowers June, my family and I have never seen them anywhere.
kind regards
M Coady.

    Take a close up of the leaves and flowers so that you have a few close-ups to show and take it to a local green house, not big box store and see if they know, if they don't, they may know where you can get them identified.

    Where do you live? That might be a clue.

    It may be an Orchid Gladiola.

    Hi Maclewtus :) From what I can see it looks like it might be in the Gladiolus family. May be a Gladiolus Murielae? I think Nancy Turner (who answered above) had an excellent idea about taking some close-up pictures of leaves, flower heads, stems, and take it to a nursery for a professional to identify ;) Thnaks for using HOMETALK for answers :)

      I looked at the flower you mentioned and I'm afraid it's not the one, mine is buttermilk yellow, and others are fushia pink, but I will take it to my nearest nursery when it flowers again next June, thank you to everyone who replied, the flower peacock orchid that I have in the garden is very similar to the gladiolus murielae.

    I would definitely add some bone meal to this sight after the buds appear to "dy" out!
    It will strengthen the bulbs so when they blossom next yr your spot in the bed will be glorious!!
    I agree that they are gladiolus 🤗I
