Description of varieties of gladiolus: tango, isabella and traderhorn

Perhaps this flower can boast of such an abundance of varieties and species, which makes it a leader among similar plants. At the same time, the color scheme of gladioli is simply amazing. They can be snow-white, like winter snow, and at the same time, there are varieties resembling a fading sunset with its inherent brightness. One of these flowers is a tangi gladiolus.

In this case, the diameter of the flower itself is quite large and reaches 12-14 cm.
Unlike tango, in the isabella variety, the shape of the flower has a fundamentally different look.
Its height varies between 150-160 cm, which makes this species one of the tallest among its counterparts. At the same time, its flowers have a coloring that resembles that sort of grape from which tart and aromatic wine is made. Due to its characteristics, the isabella gladiolus looks quite elegant. A significant difference or, one might say, a feature is the presence on the stem of a small red spot.
Another great variety is called traderhorn. This plant belongs to the undersized category and reaches a height of 100-120 cm. However, such compactness does not affect its external characteristics at all, which make it bright and striking. Traderhorn contains large triangular inflorescences. In their colors, they resemble red velvet with a slight tint. Such successful visual properties make this option one of the most commonly used for creating landscape projects.
