Gladiolus × hortulanus 'Priscilla' Vis UV IR comparison

Gladiolus × hortulanus 'Priscilla' Vis UV IR comparison
Gladiolus × hortulanus 'Priscilla' flower photographed in visible light (top), ultraviolet (middle), and infrared (bottom).

In visible light the flower is pale pink with a yellow centre and deeper pink edges.

In ultraviolet light the area near the edge of the petals appears quite dark. The centre of the flower (roughly corresponding to the pale yellow area in visible light) also appears dark.

In infrared light the flower does not have much difference in tone across its petals, appearing very plain.
