Gladiolus trichonemifolius Ker Gawl. is found on wet sandy flats in the winter rainfall areas. It blooms in late winter to early spring and is cream to yellow with brown lines on the lower tepals and a darker yellow center. This species now includes a form formerly known as Gladiolus citrinus, which has a cupped perianth and a dark purple blotch in the center. It's very different from the typical form. The first two photos by Bob Rutemoeller show the former G. citrinus. The remaining photos show the typical form.
