Gladiolus is easy to grow. The colors are white, blue, and pink. These bulbs are used in groups of 5 or more in perennial flower beds and borders. These flowers are excellent for cutting. They deserve to be planted in excess to garnish your bouquets and floral arrangements. The planting period is March-June. Plantings should be staggered, if possible, by fortnight to prolong flowering. Full sun exposure, sheltered from strong winds is preferable.
