Gladiolus is a classic perennial known for its tall flower spikes. A great cutting flower, gladioli look beautiful in midsummer bouquets. Here’s how to grow gladioli in your garden.
Available in a multitude of colors, gladioli grow between 2 to 5 feet in height.
The taller varieties, which should be staked, are often placed in the back of a garden to nicely complement shorter plants.
In Zone 7 and colder, gladioli corms need to be lifted in the fall and replanted the following spring.
