Gladiolus is a perennial, favored for its beautiful, showy flowers.
Gladiolus plants grow wonderfully in the warm weather of summer. You can produce these flowers in sequence by planting some corms every few weeks or so.Their stems are generally unbranched with sword-shaped leaves. The flower spikes are large and one-sided with green bracts and tepals.
The plants bloom in midsummer; however, you can prolong the bloom period by choosing early, mid, and late season types and staggering planting times. Height ranges from 2 to 4 feet.
