Gladiolus is a perennial favored for its beautiful, showy flowers. Its flowers grow on tall spikes and are often found in cutting gardens or in the back along the border (because they are tall). Gladioli have many different colored flowers, and grow between 2 to 6 feet in height. It's good for cut flowers.

Planting:

Ready your garden by using a garden fork or tiller and loosen the soil to about 12 to 15 inches deep. After loosening the soil, mix in a 2– to 4–inch layer of compost.

Set the corm in the hole about 4 inches deep with the pointed end facing up. Cover with soil and press firmly.

Space the corms 3 to 6 inches apart. Water the corms thoroughly.

Gladioli like well-drained, light soil and full sun.

If you're planting tall varieties, be sure to stake them at planting time. Be careful not to damage the corms with the stakes.

Care

Put a 2– to 4–inch layer of mulch around your gladioli to keep your soil moist and help prevent weeds.

If you get less than 1 inch of rain a week, water your plants regularly throughout the summer. Otherwise, water them moderately when in growth to keep the soil moist.

Remove the faded/dead flowers to ensure continuous growth.
