Gladiolus 'Catharina'. I had mine in pots this year. In early to mid summer they have tall green spikey leaves, which add height interest at the centre of a  potted arrangement. In the late summer and fall, they produce lush, tropical-iike blossoms.

Glorious Gladiolus! - mostly used as cut flowers, they can be a good complement in flower beds as the back of the border.
