GLADIOLUS, HARDY - Jacob’s Ladder -   (Gladiolus byzantinus) -

Perennial that blooms in spring April to June with 18-30 inches spikes with magenta  flowers.  Clumps increase in size each year.  Not an easy plant to find.  ‘Albus’ is a white-flowered variety. Will naturalize along the Gulf Coast. Regular glads are much harder to grow.
