Description: Perennial. These gladioli were found growing wild near Whitianga Bay in the Bay of Plenty and are stunning. They are not the original ones that we have in our collection from the goldfields on the Coromandel, but they are an old cultivar. The flowers are not as big as the more modern ones. The orange flowers with yellow centres colours are vibrant and make excellent vege garden companions. They hold their heads up without staking.
