Species Gladiolus


By Siris

Species Gladiolus (Gladiolus communis (Gladiolus) byzantinus)

Gladiolus byzantinus in the Iris border, with 'scented blue'. The Glad starts at the back, and gradually creeps forward, until I divide the Iris and move it to the back again.

That's good for the first year for a 'tall'. Hope you don't get any more strong winds.

It's a lovely Gladioli. A must have in any garden in my opinion.

It is pretty, and not too much of a nuisance unlike Glad papilio.

Crikey - I rather like G.papilio. I had no idea that it was invasive.
