Glamini® Gladiolus Collection Description

Unrivaled in Beauty and Performance

Earlier. Longer Lasting. More!
While half the height of other glads, Glaminis are also their superior. Strong, windproof stems support up to 10 blooms each. What's more, each bulb produces up to 2 flower spikes blooming in succession. The result is up to 20 blooms per plant and continuous bloom for 18 days or more! You get to enjoy them sooner, too, since Glaminis bloom 10-15 days earlier than ordinary glads.

Use Glaminis almost anywhere for a breathtaking effect.
Glaminis are highly pest resistant and will grow and bloom happily in full sun or partial shade. Use them in the middle or fronts of borders and beds. They also do exceptionally well in patio containers—or even window boxes where viewing their rich cascades of 3-4" flowers up close is a special pleasure. Glaminis are also splendid in your vase.

Easy Care
Simply plant 3" deep in sun or partial shade and space 3-4" apart. Glaminis can be lifted approximately 8-10 weeks after flowering. Dry the bulbs and let them overwinter in a cool, dark, frost-free location.

Breck's® is proud to present the greatest advance in the breeding of gladiolus in over a century of cultivation
For years, hybridizers the world over tried in vain to create a true dwarf gladiolus. Then finally horticulturists of the Forever Cooperative Breeders Association in the Netherlands had a major breakthrough— a new gladiolus that was a mere 20" tall, less than half the height of an ordinary glad. Yet this short plant produces full-size blooms! And not just a few, but up to 20 per bulb!

Common Features of this collection are:
  • Half the height with full-size blooms
  • Bloom earlier and last longer
  • Will not blow over


  • This collection includes 10 each of the following varieties:

  • Kim: The centres of its regal, blue-purple blooms are exquisitely highlighted in light purple to white. Wonderful in cut-flower arrangements.

  • Silvia: Warm golden-yellow flowers brighten any garden, border or container that they grace. Fast growing, early blooming and floriferous.

  • Tom: Blooms are dark purple-red to scarlet. Adds rich, gorgeous colour to a mixed border. Compact, sturdy and never need staking.

  • Blondie: Its stalks, filled with snow-white blooms, command attention in the landscape. Flowers contrast beautifully with the sword-shaped, green leaves.

  • Jenny: Its brilliant orange blooms are quite unusual for a glad. A pop of red in each centre completes this hard-to- find colour combination.
