Gladiolas are always associated with Summer. There's a reason for that: Gladiolas give a wonderful firework show in the border or in a pot on your patio or balcony – or in a vase because Gladiolas make wonderful cut flowers! You'll see all kinds of colours! It's normal to see lots of different flower shapes too, wavy and even fringed. Nowadays there are short stemmed varieties available too (mini Gladiolas) allowing them to be planted in the middle of the border. You can use them in a mix of colours as well as all in one colour or colour combination per flower. They look their best when planted in groups. Check below for your new gladiolas.
