Description:

...because if this is Gladiolus tristis, then what is this? http://www.ispotnature.org/node/490432?nav=search and why don't they look like these? http://www.ispotnature.org/node/604642?nav=search : http://www.ispotnature.org/node/638646?nav=related . The fourth rather bad picture shows the flower sticking out of the stem at a rather jaunty angle, and it was growing next to the road on a slope, but in a rather damp area.
