A Scented Gladiolus ......

...... grown by a colleague of my husband, this is a Cape species hybrid gladiolus, not the usual hybrid gladiolus you see in flower shops or would grow in your garden.

It is not frost resistant, so cannot survive outside in a UK winter. This is flowering today because it has been grown in a greenhouse.

Very pretty and delicate, it has a lovely perfume.

  

N.B. This is a real flower ...... NOT sugar, but it's the only gladiolus I might ever contemplate attempting in gumpaste. Please note though ...... I said might !!
