Photo of Italian Gladiolus, Gladiolus italicus in bloom in its natural environment. This cormous perennial, is rather common in cultivated fields, since it is favored by human agricultural activities. It flowers in spring and its pinkish purple flowers, are borne on a long spike, giving the plant a special ornamental value.
