When I first saw Gladiolus 'Purple Prince' in the UK's Cotswold Garden Flowers, 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. Since 2003, we've grown it in the garden, where it's been outstanding, providing plenty of stems for arrangements.
