If you remember a brilliant scarlet glad from your grandmother's garden, one with crisp white contrasting centers and tall, straight flower spires, it was probably Traderhorn. With sixteen to twenty four 4-5" flowers per stem, this gladiolus has been grown for years and is still one of the best. An All American gladiolus winner.
Plant bulbs 6-7" deep
