Searching Genus for Gladiolus
A genus best known for barely hardy perennials with swordlike leaves and showy flowers. The majority of tender species come from Africa. However, there exists a small race of hardy Glads hailing from Europe through the Near East, fairly rare in the trade, but well worth growing.
A spectacular and rare species growing on near vertical cliffs in the Drakensberg. Oversized vivid red flowers which grow out sideways on relatively small plants. Hard to explain – has to be seen. Goes dormant in late summer. Sharp drainage is critical in the garden. Can also be grown in good-sized clay pots in well draining soil(dry and frost protected in winter). Although it gets mixed reviews about hardiness in Europe, one friend has had it in his Quebec City garden for two winters (always very reliable snow cover). Limited quantity.
