Gladiolus papilio (potted)

Plant type: Bulb

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 cope with very 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.
