Gladiolus ochroleucus grows in grasslands and light bush or woodland in the Eastern Cape. Flowers are either shades of pink, sometimes light purple or reddish, or whitish or yellow flushed brownish on the reverse. The lower tepals are white in the lower half sometimes with dark red-purple median streaks. The first two photos by Cameron McMaster were taken January 2008 in the Eastern Cape. Photos number three, four, and five were taken near Morgan Bay by Bob Rutemoeller and Mary Sue Ittner.
