Sheaves of gladiolus

Has anyone else seen these before? I nearly gave myself whiplash looking at them, celophane-wrapped in a bucket of water when I was out shopping for supper last night. It was like falling into one of my flower dreams, where I go hiking in improbably lush fields of indigenous flowers, perhaps in Cape Town.

These are so South African, a souped up version of Gladiolus monticola or its cousins. I have never seen them sold commercially before and was so excited I bought two bunches.
