Gladiolus cardinalis x – Waterfall Gladiolus
This is a small Gladiolus, and the plant grows to a little over ½M, with stiff upright leaves. Spikes of vibrant red flowers white markings and silvered backing to the petals rise above sword shaped leaves in spring.
This is an outrageous plant. Whereas other delightful small gladioli have white petals with attractive markings, this one goes for tomato sauce red petals with white markings. And attractive silvered backing to the petals. This is an unusual plant that you have to snap up if you ever come across it.
