it is beautiful

I forgot to add they are perfumed in the evening, so if grown in pots can be brought indoors for a short while, hence photographed in the conservatory.

They are all beautiful! I love gladiolus communis byzantius and am increasing my stock every year. These are really beautiful too!

Byzantius just grow wild here in Cornwall, seed around very readily.

It was at Heligan, but I think it was a one off I've never seen them since. The lemon Tristis is widely available I believe
