When I first saw this in the UK at Cotswold Garden it was not in flower, but I was intrigued at the thought of a hardy purple glad, so I bought one on faith...and Mastercard. I was rewarded the next spring with a superb gladiolus that produced 4' tall spikes laden with rich, dark purple flowers starting in early June...a hummingbird magnet. We've now got enough that we grow it both in the garden, with plenty for arrangements, and to share with you. This vigorous grower is simply superb!
