Fragrant Gladiolus Rainbow Mix
  • Unlike standard gladiolus, this lively series of glads was hybridized in order to create a hardy glad collection that can remain in the ground from zones 4 to 10 without replanting each season
  • The result is a wonderful fragrant dwarf assortment that grows 18" to 30" tall
  • Provides a multitude of beautifully colored flowers for your garden
  • Also make a great cut flower to brighten up your home
  • Blooms late in the spring and early summer and every spring and summer thereafter in a multitude of color dimensions
  • Provides a wealth of flower spikes to cut for indoor bouquets
  • In the garden the flower spikes on these dwarf glads are not prone to flopping to the ground like their taller cousins
  • These glads will stand up to the harshest weather and will form magnificent colonies with each passing year. Excellent for container planting or in-ground in the front or middle border or planted throughout the garden for accent
  • This collection will fill up to 50 sq. feet when planted 6" to 12" apart and will thrive in any well-drained garden soil in full to partial sun

Planting instructions
  • Dig a hole about 4- 6" deep and twice the width of the dormant Gladiolus corm. Carefully place corm in the hole with its tip 3" below the soil surface. Work soil in and around corm, firming it with fingers. Water well. 

Continuing care
  • If natural rainfall is less than 1" per week, additional watering is recommended
  • You can even start your winter mulch upon transplanting as a mulched bed retains moisture and also helps keep down the weeds. A 2" to 4" layer of shredded bark or compost is ideal for this and will also maintain soil temperatures. 

Feeding instructions
  • Feed your plants with an organic fertilizer to promote superior growth and bloom
  • Discontinue any feeding after September 1 so your plants can harden off for winter dormancy

Winterizing instructions
  • Glad nanus are winter-hardy perennial glads and will send up new stalks late the following spring/early summer
  • After frost causes the foliage to wither and die, cut back the stalks to ground level
  • After you cut back to the ground in the fall you can still mulch if you feel that this is necessary. However, remove the mulch in the spring as soon as temperatures start to rise.
