I was just following on from John Grimshaw's description of plants he  
has seen growing wild in places like Mt. Kenya and Ethiopia.

I decided to see if I could find which botanic gardens hold  
collections of tropical gladiolus.
I did a plant search on the BGCI site:   (Botanic Gardens  
Conservation International)

They do not reveal where the plants are, in the interests of plant  
protection,  but give you a chance to email a request for information.

Of the gladiolus that interest you, some are not listed anywhere, but  
the following are present in one botanic garden:

Gladiolus dalenii subsp. dalenii 1
Gladiolus melleri   1
Gladiolus abyssinicus  1
