Gladioli Black Velvet by thistle01

Gladioli Black Velvet

Just beginning to unfurl the flower heads. Another few days and they should be fully out. SOOC apart from a small crop.
What an unusual colour.

@salza Thanks Sally. They are glorious when in full bloom. I hope to get a better shot then. They are almost back at first but as they open up more they change to a deep purple.

@shepherdmanswife I hadn't seen any before. This is their third year and they have always flowered well. The flower gradually goes from almost black to a deep purple. They are called Black Velvet
