Pot Size : 9cm
A hardy Gladiolus species from South Africa and Lesotho which thrives in a sunny well-drained position although, contrary to many garden books, it will also cope with damp positions in sheltered gardens. The narrow, tough leaves are a waxy blue-grey and the flower spikes that appear in mid to late summer hold hooded, creamy flowers with a lilac-purple flush on the inside. Bees love this form!
