One of the most popular cutting flowers in America!
A colorful mix of Gladiolus flowers make any yard more beautiful! The flower spikes appear late summer, with flowers developing one above another. This variety that is hardy as far north as zone 7, but most gardeners above this zone will have to dig and store the bulbs over the winter.

Planting
Place the corms 6 to 8 inches apart and 6 to 8 inches deep. Gladiolus bulbs need a sunny location with plenty of moisture. If not planted deep enough they are likely to fall over when heavily loaded with flowers. Loosen the soil beneath the corms well so that roots can penetrate easily. Work bone meal into the soil before planting. They will need a side-dressing when the flower spikes are forming.

Lifting
Before the first frost, lift the corms and cut off the tops close to the corm. Spread the corms in a cool, shady place to dry. If drying indoors or in an area with poor air circulation, consider running a fan. Poor air circulation encourages rot and mildew. Once the corms have dried they should be dusted clean and stored in dark place in dry wood shavings or peat moss. Check bulbs periodically through the winter for signs of softening or rotting.
