Gladiolus palustris


Quick Characteristics:

Flower Colors: purple, white
 

Gladiolus palustris is native to central and northwestern Europe, the most northerly range in the genus, and is suitable for ordinary to moist border conditions. The normal flower color is rosy violet. Photos 1-4 from Hans Joschko. The pictured white form in photo 5 from Jane McGary was grown from seed sent by Ole Olsen of Norway, who cultivates the parent plants as a "blue" form. This species faces only one direction and does not have more than 6 flowers on a spike. We have been told this may be misnamed, but have not been given another name.
