WILD GLADIOLUS Gladiolus illyricus (Height to 90cm) is an upright, hairless perennial. The slender, grass-like leaves are easily overlooked but not so the striking, pinkish purple flowers, 3-4cm long, that are borne in tall spikes (Jun-Jul). Wild Gladiolus grows among Bracken on the margins of open woodland and heaths.
