This is Gladiolus watsonioides in its finest form, once known as G. 
mackinderi. It is one of the outstanding plants of Mt Kenya.

I am currently selecting images for my talk 'Switchbacks Yes, Suburbs No: 
Alpines in Tropical Africa' which I'll be presenting at the NARGS Western 
Winter Study Weekend in Medford, Oregon, on Saturday March 6th - more 
details available from:…

Gladiolus watsonioides will be one of the plants I'll be speaking about.
