Smokey Gladiola Corms

We are falling hard for gladiolas this year and Smokey was what originally made us turn our heads and reconsider the Gladiola. Pearly mauve, she has a kind of lady chic that we are saying yes to. Elegant, stately, tea party vibes

Don’t call it a comeback. Gladiolas may have gone out of fashion for a minute, but they have always been the towering queens of the cottage garden. They have reemerged and are here to stay. Vertical, Iris-like, ruffled spikes of color, easy to grow, and easy to love. Gladiolas, we are glad, glad, glad that you’ve arrived.

Includes 15 corms in a cloth bag, with a wooden plant marker and planting instructions
Plant Info
How to Plant Dig a hole about four inches deep and plant your Gladiolus corms with the pointy end up, 4-6" apart. Fill in the soil and lightly compress. Water them. Ta da! That's it
Where to Plant Find a place that gets full to part sun, in well-drained, fertile soil. Gladiolus work nicely planted behind your shorter, bushier plants
When to Plant Late spring, once the soil has warmed
When to Expect Blooms Summer, about 90 days after planting. Gladiolus bloom once a season for about 10 days. Stagger planting every 1-2 weeks for continuous summer bloom time
Care Instructions Stake to support. Water regularly once they start to sprout, and then give them extra water during dry spells
Extra Credit After your first frost, you can dig up, dry, and store your corms in a cool, dark place to replant the following spring
Growing Info
How to Plant Stick in the dirt 1/4" deep, 2" apart. Water gently & regularly as seedlings emerge over the next 2 weeks. Once babies are 2” tall, pluck so there's just one per 12"
Where to Plant Find a place that gets mostly sun, good soil is not important to this one
When to Plant Early spring, or late fall if winters are mild. Sow directly into garden
When to Expect Blooms All summer!
Care Instructions Water regularly once established, and pick the flowers regularly (Bring the flowers in! Make bouquets! Have fun!) to encourage more blooms
Extra Credit Lace Flower will readily self seed in poor soil if left to go to seed. Also, a good dye plant!
