Propagation is by the formation of new corms from the parent corm, and by seeds.
The corms should be planted not less than 3 in.
Deep. Propagation is effected by seed or increase of corms; the seed should be sown as soon as it is ripe in June or July.
In the 17th century the corms were worn by some of the German peasantry as a charm against the plague.
New corms are produced at the end of the season, and by these the plant is multiplied.
The corms should be planted 3 in.
The ground has to be thoroughly cleared of stones, manured and trenched, and the corms are planted in ridges.
The same mode of increase occurs in the gladiolus and crocus, but their bulb-like permanent parts are called corms, not bulbs.
Showy autumn-blooming bulbs (corms), with crocuslike flowers, all rosy-purple or white.
Plant anemone and ranunculus roots and the corms of gladiolus.
A genus of South African plants with fibrous-coated corms or solid bulbs, often known as montbretas.
