Pillar box red with flashes of cream on the lower petals. 80-100cm sure to cause a sensation.
Petite Glamour Gladiolus are perfectly sized for containers, small garden beds or layered borders in need of vertical colour. These more petite Gladiolus hybrids grow just 70-100cm high and are faster to bloom, opening in less than 100 days in warmer weather. The smaller florets open on strong stems that rarely need staking and last well both in the garden and the vase.
Gladioli are ideal in clumps or woven through beds, where their impressive colour range makes them a cinch to combine with other perennial plants such as Lilies, Salvias, roses or Dahlias. They are also excellent in the picking garden.
Gladioli bring a welcome dimension of height to your garden and come in a huge array of colours so there is something to suit everyone and every garden colour scheme. The bulbs are easy to plant and don't require a lot of fuss, humbly requiring sun and well drained soil.
It is best to wait until after frosts for planting. It is a good idea to ensure you plant your Gladioli bulbs deeply enough, this will reduce the need for staking. Gladioli like a sunny position and you need to ensure you keep them moist when they are in flower for best results. From planting they will take 70-100 days to flower – quicker in warmer weather.
