A spectacular show of color with a dramatic look and an abundance of flowers that are dazzling in a bouquet, Gladiolus are truly breathtaking in your garden! Producing elegant, 3-foot flower spikes with orchid-like blooms growing to a height of 2 to 6 feet, Gladiolas come in a wide array of gorgeous colors, ranging from white, yellow, orange, pink and lavender, to rose, burgundy, purple and green, Glads are also available in many bi-colors. Requiring very little ground space, you can plant Gladiolus almost anywhere in the garden.
Gladiolas begin to bloom in late summer when perennials are starting to fade. The elegant spikes of color stand tall among other plants, adding both color and vertical interest. They are spectacular in a vase and equally beautiful in perennial gardens, annual flower borders, container gardens and even vegetable gardens. Once the flowers fade, the sword-like foliage continues to be an attractive addition to the garden.
