These long-lasting Hardy Glads bloom earlier than regular Gladiolus. Plus they're winter hardy, so you can leave them in the ground (except in northern areas) to multiply and naturalize in your garden year after year. This mixture of award-winning varieties includes a delightful range of colour patterns. Lovely in borders or cut-flower bouquets, they thrive in full sun to partial shade. Blooms in early summer. Plant 8-10 cm bulbs 3" apart. Grows 24-28" tall. Gladiolus nanus. Zones: 4 - 9-->
Hardy. Leave the bulbs undisturbed, they need mulch in wintertime in colder climates
When I ordered the stinky flower, I also ordered these. Does anybody have any experience with hardy glads?
Oh, I also ordered these
Receive a standing ovation from your neighbours as you roll out a breathtaking carpet of these colour-saturated Asiatic lilies. Hardy buds atop very strong stems in white, pink, yellow and red are easy to grow and are certain to warm your heart. Flowers are 5-6” across and return year after year, spreading in number and beauty. All they need is a well-drained undisturbed location. Parade these gems in front of a garden border or plant en masse for a phenomenal garden display. Showcase them inside as a glamourous bouquet. Bulb size 14-16cm.
A mass of vivd deep-red colour in a smaller-size lily make this an all-time favourite.
Dianne, aren't these the ones you ordered last year?
P.S. When I got up yesterday I checked on Freddy. He was gone. When I got home from work, I watered the plants and looked all over to see if he was lying dead someplace. I did not find him, so I take that as a sign he is alive.
I am so glad you stopped by to visit my garden. I garden in lower northern Michigan (zone 5) in far less than ideal conditions. I have too many pine trees, too much shade, too many rocks, herds of hosta-munching deer and rabbits who think my lilly buds are gourmet appetizers. I am by no means an expert in horticulture or garden design--just an amateur with a shovel and a passion. My garden changes daily during the summer and I will be updating frequently.
During the winter months, I blog about my favorite cold-weather hobby--quilting and just my everyday musings.
I hope you enjoy your visit, and that you will come back soon.
