Gladiolus dalenii “Hookeri” – African Gladiolus

This plant grows from corms and flower spike rise to about 1½M. Spikes of intensely yellow and orange coloured flowers rise above sword shaped leaves.

Along with Kniphofia (Red Hot Pokers) G. dalenii provides improbably day-glow yellow/orange colour in Karin’s garden in the middle of winter.
