Gladioli (Species) Abyssinian Gladiolus

Gladioli have been extensively hybridized and a wide range of ornamental flower colours are available from the many varieties. They are popular in summer cottage gardens and are mostly planted at the back of borders to provide colour anf height. They make very good cut flowers. Corms should be lifted in winter before frosts and replanted in spring, on sand if your soil is not free draining. This variety has grass like leaves that sport beautiful tubular scented flowers. Growing to 70–100 cm tall, and in late summer, numerous fragrant white flowers with a maroon (occasionally orange) blotch in the throat.
