Details
Why we love it:
  • Although glads may seem a little old-fashioned, if you plant in bold blocks they can make stunning late summer statements
  • The Gladiolus Espresso produces tall spires of rich chocolatey red blooms and will make a wonderful statement throughout your garden
  • The strong arrow like foliage of the gladioli gives structure to borders during the growing season, while late summer spikes of darkest red offer excellent border colour and cut flower material
  • Plant with softer, paler coloured flowers for an impressive display
  • So easy to grow, simply plant, sit back and watch through the season. Although it's a tender perennial, you should be able to leave it outdoors in town & sheltered gardens with nothing more than a mulch

    What you need to know:
  • What to expect: 10 x bulbs in package with instructions. Wait until March to plant up when the worst frosts are over
  • Plant Type: Frost Hardy Perennial
  • Flowers: Deep red/brown flowers. Fast growing, July through to November
  • Approx Height when mature: 100cm
  • Position in the Garden: Full sun, in borders, may need staking. For best results plant in batches of 5 culms to create bold blocks
  • Soil Type: Moist, fertile but free-draining. Not heavy clay
  • Hardiness: Frost-hardyCaring for your plant:
  • In mild areas with free-draining soil, Gladioli can be left to overwinter in the ground or pots, but in colder areas lift and store to protect them from the worst winter weather. Lift once the foliage has died back, discard old corms and keep new corms in a frost-free location such as the garage
  • In milder areas where there's little risk of continuous frosty periods, or in sheltered urban gardens with the added protection of walls, simply leave overwinter with good mulch of compost or bark
