    white flower of gladiolus murielaae Gladiolus murielae is a plant that keeps changing its name – it used to be Acidanthera, then Gladiolus callianthus and now G. Murielae, but whatever its name it is a thing of loveliness. Somehow I didn’t get round to ordering any this year and thought I would be without them because they are not reliably hardy, so I was delighted that several have grown in the new border. I can only think that they were in the soil that was removed from another border during the landscaping and that they like their new sunny spot.
