Gladiolus species (Acidanthera murielae (Peacock orchid))

Not sure if we should be calling this Gladiolus murielae or Acidanthera murieliae, slightly tender, growing in a pot in the conservatory.

Thank you Hywel ☺x If I had started to learn the latin names when I was younger I would be able to remember every one now as I do have a good recall button from a photographic memory like my mum who still had hers up until she died at 87 but its now fading fast with me lol. I do admire those that know latin names as like you said it the same language world wide.
