Blue Mountain glads may remind you of your last high peaks vacation, of a perfect summer sky or may simply be appealing because they're a wonderful shade for mixing with garden whites, pinks and blues. This tall, strong bloomer is an excellent choice if you like to plant your gladiolus bulbs in waves to ensure flower spires all summer, as it sprouts and grows well even in the full heat of mid summer.
Plant bulbs 6-7" deep
Glads need about 1" of rain/irrigation per week.
