Hardy Glads

In the fall, plant hardy glads in full sun. Make sure the soil you are using drains well. Plant the corms in groups about 4-6" apart and 3" deep. Use any 5-10-5 fertilizer, but do not use animal manure since it can promote rot. During the winter months, apply mulch over the soil for protection. Hardy in Zones 5-10.

Glamini Glads

Glamini glads are very pest resistant and bloom well in full sun or partial shade. You can plant these gladiolus flowers in the middle or front of borders and beds because of their short height. They can also be grown in patio containers or window boxes where you can view their gorgeous cascades of 3-4" flowers up close from your living space. Glaminis can also be picked to be displayed in a vase. Caring for this variety is the same as for any gladiolus. Start by planting the bulb 3" deep in sun or partial shade and group them 3-4" away from each other. Glamini glads can be removed about 8-10 weeks after flowering. During the winter, dry the bulbs and store them in a cool, dark, frost-free spot.

How to Grow Gladiolus Bulbs

With their mid-season bloom, gladiolus bulbs make an excellent transition between late spring bloomers like irises and fall's dahlias and asters. When planting gladiolus bulbs, bear in mind that they are winter hardy in zones 7 to 10. If you live in zones 3 to 7, lift the bulbs in autumn. Plant your gladiolus bulbs in the spring, about 6 inches deep and 3 to 4 inches apart. Our Dutch-sourced gladiolus flower bulbs are carefully selected for their hardiness, so you can look forward to these perennial flowers returning to grace your garden year after year (this means gladiolus bulbs come back year after year). Most varieties of gladiolus bloom from early to midsummer.
