This amazing gladiolus was discovered at an abandoned homestead by NC plantsman Arley Dugger. It is certainly possible that this had a cultivar name at one time, but we have been unable to track it down. For us, Gladiolus 'Robeson Red' is one of the earliest of the Gladiolus dalenii hybrids to flower, starting for us in late May and often reflowering sporadically through July. The 4' tall sturdy stalks are laden with medium-sized scarlet-red flowers...outstanding!
