This showstopper, Gladiolus 'Shaka Zulu', will make sure everyone who walks through your garden will stop and take notice. There’s just no ignoring this stunning large-flowering plant with its large numbers of blooms jostling for space on each stem. The blooms have an assortment of deep maroon shades spilling over the petals. Contrasting starkly with the richness of these hues, pure white dashes down the petals’ spines from the flower’s centre, and leaves a dusting of white scattered on the surrounding petals in its haste. This dusting of white gives a sparkle of light on the rich background of Gladiolus 'Shaka Zulu's dark flowers!
